Book Description:

For a tour leader in New Zealand like myself I found this book invaluable. Certainly thought-provoking , it helps explain many anomalies if the early Maori record, both oral and archaeological. It sheds new light on why there was a demise in building the great ocean-going canoes and also gives a credence to the Maori story of the Takitumu canoe being forced ashore & becoming the Takitumu Mountains - there is always a modicum of truth in all legends. Highly recommended for anyone leading tours in NZ, or anyone interested in how the forces of nature have shaped - and are still shaping - our world.
