MANY LEGENDS ARE BUILT AROUND SUPPOSED HAPPENINGS IN
CONNECTION WITH LAVA FLOWS IN THE OUTLYING ISLANDS
OF THE HAWAIIAN CHAIN. I HAVE HEARD SEVERAL VARIA-
TIONS OF THIS TALE.
ONE DAY ONE OF "THE OLD ONES" (A LEGENDARY PERSON WHO
APPEARS IN MORTAL FORM, ASKING FOR ALMS) APPEARED AT
THE DOOR OF A POOR MAN'S HUT ON THE SLOPES OF MAUNA
KEA. HE WAS GIVEN HOSPITALITY, AND WHEN IT WAS TIME
FOR HIM TO GO, HE INSTRUCTED THE POOR MAN TO PUT THREE
STONES AT THE FOUR CORNERS OF HIS LAND. THE OLD MAN
DID AS HE WAS TOLD, AND SOON AFTER, THE VOLCANO
ERRUPTED AND LAVA POURED DOWN THE MOUNTAIN, DESTROYING
EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH--BUT WHEN IT REACHED THE OLD
MAN'S LAND, IT SPLIT AND WENT AROUND. (THEY WILL
STILL SHOW YOU A NUMBER OF PLACES WHICH ARE BARE OF
LAVA AND THERE IS A VARIATION OF THE STORY TO GO
WITH EACH ONE.)
