Towards the end of 1845, Sir George Grey was requested to administer the affairs of New Zealand. He quickly realised he could not successfully govern or conciliate with a people whose language, customs, manners and religion he was unaquainted with. In order to assist him with learning the Maori language, he spent eight years collecting ancient myths, poems and legends from the Maori chiefs who used these in their speeches, or in their letters, and frequently quoted fragments of ancient poems or proverbs, or made allusions which rested on an ancient system of mythology. This is a collection of ancient traditional poems, religious chants and songs of the Maori as translated by Sir George Grey and presented to the European reader

Educated at Sandhurst, Sir George Grey (1812–98) became Governor of South Australia when he was not yet thirty. Later he served as Governor of New Zealand and High Commissioner for South Africa, and in the 1870s he enjoyed a period as Premier of New Zealand. Although he liked to portray himself as 'good Governor Grey' some of his contemporaries found him ruthless and manipulative. Like many other Victorian administrators, he was convinced that the 'savage' natives needed to be 'raised' properly in order to become more like Europeans. In this 1841 publication, Grey writes about two expeditions to North–West Australia that took place under his leadership in 1837–9. In Volume 1, he tells of the difficulties that the expedition encountered while seeking a site for settlement, including an incident when the spear of a 'coloured man' wounded him and he shot the 'wretched savage'
