From the Inside Flap:

Hawaii's mystical past lives in the Battle of the Owls, the transformation of the pig-man Kamapuaa, the strifes of the demon-god Maui, the diminutive Menehune, and the legendary healers of old. Using the Hawaiian language sources of David Malo and Samuel Kamakau, Thrum was among the first to popularize island folk tales. First published in 1907, this collection brings together a series of legends printed in The Hawaiian Annual that included other noted folklorists of the time such as Emerson, Forbes, Gibson, Hyde, Nakuina, and Poepoe. These tales perpetuate the beauty and mystery of Hawaiian sacred tradition serving as an excellent first introduction to the myths, legends, and folk tales that once bound people and the spirit realm in a cosmic unity of purpose.
