Book News Annotation:

Drawing on traditional Hawaiian lore and post-contact accounts of Pele, Nimmo (emeritus, cultural anthropology, California State U. East Bay) presents a study of the Hawaiian goddess of fire and the associated, still practiced and evolving religion. A list of Pele's siblings, places visited by her, and epithets (ranging from "royal woman of the volcano" to "old woman who sleeps and snores") are appended. Illustrations include a map of the island of Hawai'i, and Pele-related sites, ceremonies, and art. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
