Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Every Maori tribe has its own stories and legends which have been proudly recounted through the generations. Many of these stories are rooted in the land and feature the natural landforms of the region. Now in this new book the first of its kind Maori writer Chris Winitana tells fourteen fabulous Maori stories that have their origins in the land. The stories which come from different tribes and regions of the country are accompanied by a large number of haunting landscape images taken by photographer Andy Reisinger. Among the stories included are the Maui legend Kupe the Arawa canoe the walking mountains the waters of Waikaremoana the fires of the earth Rona and the moon the flight of the greenstone people and the story of Wakatipu. This beautiful and unique book with its fresh re-tellings of stories both familiar and less well-known will be of interest to New Zealanders and tourists alike.
