About the Author:

Little personal information is available on the historical Hawaiian writer, Ho'oulumahiehie, but he was a prolific teller of traditional and foreign stories whose works were frequently published in the late 19th and early 20th century newspapers. This tale was originally published as a six-day-per-week serial column in the Hawaiian-language daily Ka Na`i Aupuni in 1905 and 1906 r. Puakea Nogelmeier has taught awaiian language, literature and translation at the University of Hawai i, Manoa, for 25 years, and is Director/cofounderof Awaiaulu: Hawaiian Literature Project, which was established to train a new generation of translators and generate bilingual resources. These two volumes of Ho oulumahiehie's saga, in Hawaiian and English, are the products of those efforts.
