Madame Pele: True Encounters With Hawai‘i’s Fire Goddess
In these stories from twenty-three contributors, Pele takes a variety of forms: a four-year-old sees a ‘lady in a crimson dress’; others see lights or simply feel a presence; drivers pick up hitchhikers—old women, young women—who mysteriously disappear. Pele announces a birth, commemorates a death, issues warnings, delivers blessings and curses. Is she a spirit, a legend, or a reality? Itʻs up to you to decide.
