‘….The Maori people.have over the centuries developed a mythology that matches their own great qualities.

They have a Creation myth of surpassing beauty, a pantheon of gods and heroes worthy of the Greeks, and a store of splendid tribal histories.

Previous English versions of these myths have been Bowdlerized and watered down, but in this book Antony Alpers preserves all the racy vitality of the originals, with their mixture of humor and violence, tenderness and tragedy, and above all their superb artistry…..’ d/j a little wear, book VG+
