Reed Book Of M Ori Mythology from the Author: Alexander Wyclif Reed. The Reed Book of Maori Mythology is a new, updated and revised version of A.W. Reed's classic A Treasury of Maori Folklore (1963). These vivid and entertaining stories have been revised by Ross Calman, and can now be enjoyed by a new generation of readers. The book tells the stories of the creation of the universe, of Rangi and Papa and the children of earth and sky, of the demigods Maui and Tawhaki, of supernatural monsters and fairies, and of heroes and lovers. For centuries Maori were isolated from the rest of the Polynesian world - indeed, from the rest of the world - and subsequently developed a remarkably rich, and in many ways unique, mythology. Far from being just entertainment - and the stories are very entertaining - these stories are part of a living, breathing culture. They are part of our heritage, both Maori and Pakeha."
