From master storyteller Witi Ihimaera, a spellbinding and provocative retelling of traditional Māori myths for the twenty-first century.
In this milestone volume, Ihimaera traces the history of the Māori people through their creation myths. He follows Tāwhaki up the vines into the firmament, Hine-tītama down into the land of the dead, Māui to the ends of the earth, and the giants and tūrehu who sailed across the ocean to our shores . . . From Hawaiki to Aotearoa, the ancient navigators brought their myths, while looking to the stars — bright with gods, ancestors and stories — to guide the way.
