Description

Starting in mythological times, and retelling some of the migration legends, Hawaiian Historical Legends is of interest for anyone studying encounters between cultures, particularly where one of the cultures has a technological advantage. Of particular interest are Westervelt's speculations on early contacts, not only between the Hawaiians and the Europeans, but other Pacific rim cultures such as the Chinese, Japanese and Native Americans. Chapters include, Paao From Samoa, A Viking Of The Pacific, Maui Seeking Immortality, The Red Mouth Gun, and, The Hawaiian Flag.

This book has 137 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1923.
