Land of the Long White Cloud: Maori Myths Tales and Legends
by Kiri Te Kanawa, illustrated by Michael Foreman

The Polynesian sailors who discovered NZ - land of the long white cloud - brought with them their spirit of adventure, the kumara or sweet potato, and a treasure store of myths, poems and chants. the kumara flourished there as did their skill and artistry in storytelling. the ancient myths and legends of NZ are a living heritage and as essential to the well being of life today as they were over a thousand years ago.

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa is herself a Mmaori. Land of the Long White Cloud is her personal selection of the tales she remembers most vividly from her childhood, and which she in turn has recounted to her own children. recently there was great gathering of the Te Kanawa family and Dame Kiri travelled to Tekuiti, NZ to take part in the family celebrations. she was joined at these festivities by the award winning artist michael formna and their collabroation on this book was inspired by this visit and by their shared love of storytelling.
