Description of this Electronic Book

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 duress - and were part of an international movement of Maori of surprisingly large scale. Most travellers eventually returned home, bringing something of their own 'new world' experiences with them. These remarkable experiences of voyaging and discovery, presented across a series of vignettes, also form part of the wider history of Maori and Pakeha encounter.
