Summary
A revision of the trials and tribulations of one of the most famous Maori war generals and tribal leaders, Hongi Hika, this book peels back the veneer of previous studies and dispels many misconceptions. Illustrated with maps and photographs - many in colour - this is a modern, accessible account that shows how the actions of this famous personality have been distorted by the frames of traditional historical reportage, and is an important work that updates existing scholarship on the subject
