Selections from Hawaiian Legends of Volcanoes Product Description:

When Hawaiian Legends of Volcanoes was first published in 1916, William Drake Westervelt introduced stories of the volcano goddess Pele to an English-speaking audience. The reader explores Pele’s lasting influence on the cultural and physical environment of Hawaii through traditional tales of her tempestuous nature and fierce power. W.D. Westervelt’s timeless storytelling is combined with full color and block print artwork by Dietrich Varez to create a stunning picture of Pelehonuamea; Pele of the sacred land.

Republication of this iconic work celebrates the 100th anniversary of is original printing, as well as the concurrent centennial celebrations of the United States National Park Service and the creation of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Petroglyph Press is pleased to present Selections from Hawaiian Legends of Volcanoes for a new generation of readers to enjoy.
