Holy Moli

Albatross and Other Ancestors

Oregon State University Press
Albatross live long. They spend the majority of their years airborne,gliding across vast oceans. In nesting season, they rack upinconceivable mileage to feed their chicks waiting on the islands ofthe Hawaiian archipelago. When Hob Osterlund happened upon a fewcourting albatross in Kauai, in 1979, she embarked on a personaljourney that introduced her to the Hawaiian conceptof 'amakua -- spiritual ancestors who occupy thephysical forms of animals. This is the story of how thealbatross -- or Moli -- guided Hob on her journey, backto the origin of a bargain she struck as a child.
Hob Osterlund is an award-winning writer andphotographer whose work has appeared in National GeographicExplorer, The New York Times, Nature, and more.She lives on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
