Long, long ago, on the Island of Hawai’i, there lived two beautiful goddesses.
So begins the retelling of the classic Hawaiian legend-a tale of fire and ice-when Pele ventured off her fiery mountaintop to make mischief and challenge Poli’ahu to a sled race down the snowy slopes of Mauna Kea.
It is a story about the power of nature, the power of wills, the power of skill, and an explanation of why the Big Island, to this day, is an Island of contrasts.
An exciting retelling of the legendary sled race between Pele and Poli’ahu, beautifully illustrated with unique batik artwork. A classic Hawaiian legend that should be in every child’s library
For ages 7 and up.
