"The Ancient Maori peopled his world with imaginative yet clearly-defined gods and manifestations. He had his own vivid account of the creation of the world, the separation and the clothing of the Earth Mother, and the ornamenting of the Sky Father with sun, moon and stars by Tane-matua. Tangaroa, the god of the sea, is at war with Tane of the Forests, and both are attacked by Tawhiri-matea, the god of winds. From this rich treasure store Roger Hart has selected subjects to illustrate intriguing aspects of Maori lore and takes the reader behind the scenes of Maori belief in the supernatural."
