Publisher's Summary

This book is dedicated to exploring the gods and goddesses that the Polynesian people worshiped, and within the pages you will find more information about:

  • Background facts about the Polynesian culture, such as family, social stratification, education, fishing, gardening, religion, art, and traditions
  • The intriguing legend and background story of Maui, the trickster
  • Polynesian names from mythology and their meanings
  • Rangi and Papa and the creation myth from the Polynesian islands
  • What Polynesians believed about ghosts and spirits
  • A brief overview of some of the main spirits and deities Polynesians believed in

Polynesian mythology is intricate, complex, and the ideals behind some of their mythological beliefs were often intertwined with real life events. This book will examine how both myth and fact contributed to the culture and traditions of the Polynesians, and how these influences and some stories continue to live on throughout the centuries.

not well narrated and a little too concise

it sounds like a book report someone thought they could make a buck off of. It worked. You can get more information for free on youtube. Or Wikipedia. there really wasn't a point in paying for a summary.

The Polynesians knew

They had those myths about the ocean and those legends, and they knew something fishy was going on in nature.
