Summary (From the publisher):

Fourth in Wichman’s series of Kaua‘i Tales, Pele Mā is a collection of stories that tell of the life and exploits of Pele, Kamapua‘a, Hi‘iaka, Lohi‘au, and their companions. Although Pele is always associated with the Big Island, these retellings remind us that the Pele legends have a strong link to the island of Kaua‘i. Here, we have Pele paddling in from Kahiki to Ka-lalau where she first looked for a home. We are reminded that the pig-god Kamapua'a lived, fought, and loved on Kaua'i. And we find that Lohi'au fatefully fell in love with Pele at Ha'ena, at the hula halau which, even today, can be found at the end of the road.
