Description of this Book
'Maori and Europeans were encountering one another for the first time not just along the shorelines of New Zealand but also on the streets of Melbourne, Liverpool and New York.'From the late eighteenth century, Maori travellers spread out from New Zealand across the globe. They travelled for a variety of reasons - curiosity, adventure, commerce, political missions or under duress. Most travellers eventually returned home, bringing something of their own 'new world' stories with them. These remarkable experiences of voyaging and discovery, presented here in a series of vignettes, also form part of the wider history of Maori and Pakeha encounter.
