"Ihimaera traces the history of the Maori people through their creation myths. He follows Tawhaki up the vines into the firmament, Hine-titama downinto the land of the dead, Maui to the ends of the earth, and the giants and turehu who sailed across the ocean to our shores ... From Hawaiki to Aotearoa, the ancient navigators brought their myths, while looking to the stars - bright with gods, ancestors and stories - to guide the way"--Publisher information.
