Inhaltsangabe: This annotated bibliography evolved from a series of articles H. Arlo Nimmo published about Pele, volcano goddess of Hawai´i. Of all the deities of traditional Hawai´i, none has so successfully survived the post-contact period as Pele. The extensive and varied English language literature about Pele includes observations by early European visitors, writings of the first literate Hawaiians, academic studies, travel accounts, newspaper and magazine articles, and children's books.
This bibliography contains a preface and over 800 annotated entries about Pele. The Introduction discusses the traditional Pele religion, the traditional Pele mythology, chants about Pele, legends of Pele, etiological tales, children's stories and contemporary Pele stories.

Über den Autor:
H. Arlo Nimmo , a cultural anthropologist and short story writer, was born in 1936 in the small farming community of Monroe, Iowa. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa where he was active in journalism, serving as managing editor of the college newspaper and editor of the yearbook.
His growing interests in the Pacific and Southeast Asia led him to the University of Iowa to study anthropology in 1960. The following year he continued graduate studies in anthropology at the University of Hawaii. He conducted field research in the southern Philippines where he studied the nomadic boat-dwelling Sama Dilaut for his M.A. thesis. After completing his M.A. degree, Nimmo joined the newly created Ph.D. program in anthropology at the University of Hawaii. He returned to the Philippines for additional field research for his Ph.D. which was awarded in 1969.
Nimmo has written ten books and dozens of articles. Most of these publications are based on his Philippines research, but he has also written about American popular culture, San Francisco history and Hawaii's volcano goddess Pele. His book of short stories The Songs of Salanda won the 1994 Philippines National Book Award and his ethnography Magosaha won the 2002 Social Science Gintong Aklat Award for Excellence in the Philippines. His biography The Andrews Sisters, published in 2004, was a finalist for the Association for Recorded Sound Collections Award for Excellence. His collection of stories, A Very Far Place (2012), was a finalist in the 2013 Philippines National Book Award for short fiction.
Nimmo is currently Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at California State University East Bay and resides in San Francisco.
