Legends of Maui - A Demi-God of Polynesia and of His Mother Hina by W. D. Westervelt

This book contains an account of the legends of Maui, a demi-god whose story probably contains a larger number of unique and ancient myths than that of any other legendary character in the mythology of any nation. There are three centres of this story: new Zealand in the south, Hawaii in the north, and the Tahitian group in the east; and what makes this ancient legend so interesting is that it forms one of the strongest links in the mythological chain of evidence which binds the scattered inhabitants of the pacific into one nation, existing intact or in part in Anietyum, Bowditch, Efate, Fiji, Fotuna, Gilbert, Hawaii, Hervey, Huahine, Mangaia, Manihiki, Marquesas, Marshal, to name but a few. This wonderful text has been selected because of its timeless cultural value and will appeal to anyone interested in exotic mythology. This book is republished now with a new introductory biography of the author.
