The Reed Book of Māori Exploration is a revision of A.W. Reed's Treasury of Māori Exploration (1977). Sensitively reworked for the 21st century, the Reed Book of Māori Exploration presents A.W. Reed's lively retellings of these classic stories of waka, voyaging and discovery. The stories gathered together here are central to Māori. Sourced from tribal traditions throughout the country, they also explain many familiar New Zealand place names - an interesting subject in its own right. New Zealanders from all backgrounds will find the stories appealing and fascinating. Like its companion volume, the highly acclaimed Reed Book of Māori Mythology (2004), this is the definitive reference work on its subject.
