Join the campfire circle as “Elika, Teller of Tales” recalls vanished days and nights from Hawaii’s past.
Son of a pioneer family of Kauai, author Eric Knudsen spent most of his life as a rancher, hunter, lawyer, and legislator.
These sixty tales were originally narrated by Knudsen on his radio program which aired during black-out nights of World War II. They quickly became a welcome diversion from the news of fighting around the globe. Told in the first person, it seems as though “Elika, the Teller of Tales” actually experienced these encounters with gods, goddesses, ghosts, and cowboys along his journey through Hawaii’s peaks and valleys.
