Maori myths retold.

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 Tawhaki up the vines into the firmament, Hine-titama down into the land of the dead, Maui to the ends of the earth, and the giants and turehu 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.

‘Step through the gateway now to stories that are as relevant today as they ever were.’
