Reed Book of Maori Exploration: Stories of Voyage and Discovery (Hardback, REV ed.)

By Reed, A. W.
Revised by Calman, Ross

The Reed Book of Maori Exploration is a revision of A.W. Reed's Treasury of Maori Exploration (1977). Sensitively reworked for the 21st century, it presents Reed's lively retellings of these classic stories of waka, voyaging and discovery. The stories gathered together here are c...entral to Maori. Sourced from tribal traditions throughout the country, they also explain many familiar New Zealand place names?an interesting subject in its own right. New Zealanders from all backgrounds will find the stories appealing and fascinating. Like its companion volume, the highly acclaimed Reed Book of Maori Mythology (2004), this is the definitive reference work on its subject.
