Madam Pele: True Encounters with Hawaii's Fire Goddess is an anthology of personal testimonies from twenty-three authors concerning Hawaii's legendary fire goddess. Pele's form changes in response to the perspectives of those who claim to have seen her, and it is left to the reader to sort through myth, exaggeration, legend, and reality in this marvellous and exciting anthology. Truly fun to read for the thrill of recounting modern-day testimony of meeting a goddess, Madam Pele is an excellent addition to folklore and fable shelves.
