Kahala: Where the Rainbow Ends
This Book is Currently in the Wild!
1 journaler for this copy...
In the end, Mahana knew that the spirit of Kahala could always be found at the end of the rainbow.
When we were kids, we had the whole series of these Island Heritage books. A lot of them are still on my shelf, but I think maybe some of them should go looking for new readers.
When I re-read this one, I found the relationship between Kahala and Kauhi very disturbing..but that's not the fault of the authors. As far as I can tell, that part of the story is a fairly accurate retelling of the legend. Eww.
I notice that the acknowledgements mention Frances Kakugawa, the author of Kapoho.

This book was set free to find a new reader; I'm so glad you've found it!
This is now your book and you may do whatever you like with it, but I'm hoping you will read and enjoy it. You're welcome to keep it for as long as you wish, and you can even mark it for your "permanent collection" if you'd like...but you don't have to.
In fact, there are no requirements: it's really a free book - no strings. On the other hand, if you do make a journal entry to let the book's previous readers know that it's safely in your hands (anonymously if you wish), that would be super. :D
