|Abstract:||This collection of stories explores the lives of characters from Molokaÿi. It also explores the nature of stories.|
This work of fiction has its roots in books like Pouliuli, Potiki, and The River Between. Aside from the quote by John Charlot, nothing else should be considered true.
Excerpt: "He was Hoolehua--named for the high chief of his homeland whose swift nature he was said to have inherited before birth and whose genealogy stretched in time across Hawaii--and even now, with his right arm seeded and hidden in the fertile soil of the Kamiloloa uplands and a body that revealed the burden of a labor beyond human capacity, he led the silent, chiseled men through the fallen forest of iliahi with an unquestioned authority and a presence most of the men still believed had been bestowed to him by a god."
