charming legends associated with landmarks around the town of Hilo have been
retold in words and pictures in this compilation of favorite stories.
Included are "How Hilo Got Its Name," "The Story of Coconut
Island" and the Maui and Hina legends centering on Rainbow Falls and The
Boiling Pots. For many years Frances Reed was a children's librarian at
the Hawai'i County Library and used these tales in her story-telling
hours. Jan Moon is a well-known Hilo artist and illustrator. Both
women had lived in Hilo for 30 years when they worked together to create an
enchanting book that will be enjoyed by both adults and children.
