Description

For more than eight years, George Grey devoted a great part of his available time to collecting ancient myths, poems and legends of the New Zealanders. The ultimate result was the collection of a large mass of materials. He felt unwilling that the result of his labours should be lost to those whose duty it may be thereafter to deal with the natives of New Zealand; and so he published his extensive collection of ancient traditional poems, religious chants and songs of the Maori race. It is in this volume that George Grey first presented to the European reader the first written record and translation of the principal portions of ancient Maori mythology and of some of their most interesting legends.

This book has 198 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1855.

Production notes: This ebook of Polynesian Mythology was published by Global Grey in 2018.
