The settlement of the Pacific Islands by stone-age people who were probably the greatest navigators the world has known. This important publication was the first Maori Western scholarly account of the discovery and settlement of Polynesia in ancient times by seafarers so expert in navigation that Sir Peter Buck described them as Vikings of the sunrise. This is the first synthesis of Polynesian archaeology by Sir Peter Buck, a Doctor, Politician and Anthropologist. Illustrated throughout with monochrome images/portrait and fine line drawings, decorated endpapers.
