Summary (From the publisher):

This 18-story collection is rich in legend and early Kaua'i history. Frederick B. Wichman has gathered these stories from many sources: some written down and some told to the author by Jacob Maka of Ha'ena in the oldest tradition of storytellying--word of mouth. Many of the stories help explain local phenomena, such as the reason for Waimea river sometimes flowing red, or why the Mana beaches are dangerous for swimmers. The collection features pen and ink illustrations by Christine Faye and includes a Hawaiian glossary.
