Books of Mythology about Maui

Books of Mythology about Maui:

The demi-god Maui’s feat is to stop the sun from moving so fast.

His mother Hina complains that her bark cloth is unable to dry because the days are so short.

Maui climbs the mountain Haleakala (house of the sun) and lassoes the sun’s rays as the sun comes up.
