Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE STORY OF THE MAORI PEOPLE by G L Pearce.

Illustrated with diagrams, and drawings by Harry Dansey.

“After many editions this book remains the standard popular book on the history of the Maori people. This new edition has been substantially revised to take into account the latest research, resulting in a lucid, concise and excellently readable account of the absorbing Maori story, from prehistory to the present day. Drawing upon most recent archaeological and anthropological findings, Mr Pearce demonstrates how much more we are learning of early Maori history as the years go by. From Cook’s first visit to the tragedy of the Maori Wars, there is, of course, much more detailed knowledge and this period is described with freshness and vigour. This straightforward and lively history, although simply told, rests upon a deep knowledge of the Maori, past and present, and paints a fascinating picture of one of the most remarkable of the Pacific peoples.”
