Pele and Poliahu: A Tale of Fire and Ice

Long, long ago, on the Island of Hawaii, there lived two beautiful goddesses...

So begins the retelling of the classic Hawaiian legend--a tale of fire and ice--when Pele ventured off her fiery mountaintop to make mischief and challenge Poliahu to a sled race down the snowy slopes of Mauna Kea.

It is a story about the power of nature, the power of wills, the power of skill, and an explanation of why the Big Island, to this day, is an island of contrasts.

Retold by Malia Collins. Illustrated by Kathleen Peterson
