Reading this book is like having a wise elder tell you an enrapturing moral story... Here is an ancient Hawaiian story almost as good as if it had come passed on from mouth to mouth through many generations...

A little rough in the middle, where a solid 15-20 pages were chants about different winds, but once the story gets in motion it's a lot of fun.
