Format: Paperback
Kauai Tales is a wonderful collection of books detailing the mythos of old Kauai. Wether you're a history buff or just interested in what the original residents of Kauai thought about all those beautiful landmarks like The Sleeping Giant, or my personal favorite, Pohaku O'kane. Now, this review is biased, becuase F.B. Wichman is my grandfather, but I'm sure you'll get a great experience from this book.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By First Light on October 4, 2007
Format: Paperback
These stories are full of folk wisdom, as well as beautifully lyrical descriptions of the places and people of Kaua'i. They are rich in imagery, content, and expression and show the author's deep love of the island. For those concerned with the authenticity of the material, the author explains his research method: some stories come from 19th-century schoolchildren's essays, some from museums, some from folklorists and some directly from storytellers. In any case, each story is written so naturally and so simply, that each one is a poem, and flowing together they create a sparkling and soothing river of knowledge and enjoyment for the reader. I really cannot praise this author's style enough. (This also applies to "Polihale" and "More Kaua'i Tales" by the same author).

A nice collection of Kauai lore. Many of the island landmarks are brought to life with the stories of the local Hawaiians legends made for a delightful collection of stories.
