Maori Myth and Legend Summary

Maori Myth and Legend by A. W. Reed

The Maori have a rich and colourful tradition of myth and legend. Some of their most important and popular tales are retold in this classic book. The stories range from the creation of the world and the coming of life, death and knowledge, to supernatural tales of love, terror and adventure. Read about the great god Tane, about Maui who tamed the sun, about the woman on the moon, about monsters, fairies, fabulous birds and moving mountains. Complementing the tales are Roger Hart's imaginative drawings, which were inspired both by the rich body of Maori myth and legend, and by the New Zealand landscape against which so many of the stories are depicted.
