Join him as he meets up with Cook in Tahiti and sails as part of the crew on the Endeavour across the Pacific to Aotearoa. Witness the encounters between tangata whenua and the crew as ...the ship sails around the coast, and discover the important role Tupaia plays as translator and cultural interpreter. Written in dramatic prose and verse by Courtney Sina Meredith and stunningly illustrated in graphic style by Mat Tait, this is an essential book for all New Zealanders.
