Based on Hawaiian mythology, The Hawaiian Romance of Laieikawai (1863) by S.N. Hale'ole accounts the story of young Laʻieikawai, the daughter of a powerful chief on Oahu. After Laʻieikawai's life is threatened, she is forced to flee Oahu and take refuge in a secret cave under the water. Her grandmother takes her to the legendary paradise of Paliuli where she encounters romance, riches, and the supernatural, but also trials that test her character.

Hale'ole's story was the first work of literature published by a Native Hawaiian and serves as a moving representation of traditions passed down through generations.
