The Discovery of Aotearoa

Author(s): Jeff Evans

Maori History, Society and Culture | SECONDHAND

The Discovery of Aotearoa is the most balanced account yet of the great Polynesian discovery of New Zealand. Based on extensive research, the book deals in a no-nonsense style with the causes and characteristics of Polynesian migration, the location of the Maori homeland, the legend of Kupe, traditional Polynesian navigation, and the preservation of seafaring knowledge in Maori tradition. The second part of the book presents a gripping narrative of the voyage made by the canoe Hawaiki-Nui from Tahiti to New Zealand in 1985
