Purakau: Maori Myths Retold by Maori Writers


A lively, stimulating and engaging retelling of purakau – Maori myths – by contemporary Maori writers. Ka mua, ka muri . . .Ancient Maori creation myths, portrayals of larger-than-life heroes and tales of engrossing magical beings have endured through the ages. Some hail back to Hawaiki, some are firmly grounded in New Zealand and its landscape. Through countless generations, the stories have been reshaped and passed on.
