The Legends and Myths of Hawaii, by King David Kalakaua, who lived from 1836 to 1890, is a remarkable work. It combines many traditional legends with stories about historical incidents, such as the death of Captain James Cook at the hands of the Hawaiians in 1779 and the destruction of Hawaiian temples in 1819.show more
