Greater Maori Auckland
by David Simmons

ISBN: 9780986456435
PUBLISHER: Bush Press Communications Ltd
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 192
DIMENSIONS: 184mmX240mm

For hundreds of years, rival Maori tribes fought to possess the Auckland region. So it became known as Tamaki-makau-rau, 'Tamaki of a hundred lovers' -- a much-sought after place. Here David Simmons extends his earlier account of the many traditions and legends of the Auckland isthmus to its wider context -- the countryside beyond. This greatly expanded version of his original 'Maori Auckland' (1987) also explores the traditional history of surrounding places in Manukau and Waikato, the Kaipara and Mahurangi coasts, and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. His book records an outline of Maori life on the volcanoes, the forests and seashore. There are legends of the fairy people, traditions of the arrival of the canoes, the naming of the landscapes, and of great leaders and tribal battles. This edition also includes 'Maori Place Names of Auckland' collected from Maori elders early last century by George Graham.
