The Devil‘S Legacy- to Earth Mortals. Being the Key Note to Black ...

By: M. Young

Perhaps the title of this Book – The Devil‘s Legacy to Earth Mortals may at first seem somewhat strange; they will pause as they do at a Witches Prayer, and wonder whether they had best look into it or no, lest they should really raise the Devil by reading what he has bequeathed to mankind.

By: Martha Beckwith

Why after thirty years, should Beckwith’s Hawaiian Mythology be reprinted?

There, wandering along its rocky coast and sandy beaches, exploring its windward gorges, riding above the cliffs by moonlight when the surf was high or into the deep forests at midday, we were aware always of a life just out of reach of us latecomers but lived intensely by the kin...
