Synopsis:

Maori legend tells of the heroic man-god Maui who, using the magical jawbone of his grandmother, drew up from the sea bed the North Island of the country we know today as New Zealand. Using the more contemporary magic of his camera, Werner Forman has conjured up both islands of New Zealand in this photographic evocation of its landscapes, skyscapes, people and artefacts. The book contains 195 images of people, history, antiquities, architecture, spectacular landscapes and extraordinary southern skies. The text and captions trace the country's history from the first Maori landing to the present day.
