This is an anthology of Hawaiian folklore, including pieces by Thomas Thrum and other writers. This includes many articles which were originally published in difficult to obtain journals and now-rare books. All were written in the late 19th or early 20th century, and are mostly based on first-hand oral traditions. Chapters cover topics such as resemblances to Biblical stories, myths of the gods and goddesses such as Maui and Pele, historical legends, topographical folklore, and the folklore of fishing.
These books take me anywhere from 2 to 10 hours to create. Only a tiny minority of people donate (less than 1%), yet thousands of books are downloaded every day. There is no big company behind this site – it is just me, and I really need the support of my visitors to help keep this site running. So if you feel I have helped you by providing this ebook, please consider making a small donation payment of £1.00 or whatever you can.. Thanks – Julie 🙂
I will be converting this into epub and Kindle ebook soon, but if you want it done now, contact me and I’ll do it as soon as possible.
