South Pacific Mythology (World of Mythology) (Library Binding)
Who is the volcano goddess? What makes "Maui the trickster" so tricky? Why are myths so important in our lives? Myths are a rich source of history. People use them to make sense of our world.

Readers of South Pacific Mythology will learn the history of myths, as well as their deeper meaning. From the desert tribes of Australia to New Zealand's origin of the coconut, this book helps kids understand the myths that shape and direct people's lives.
