Elsdon Best was New Zealand's foremost writer on pre-European Maori life. His books are a uniquely valuable record of traditional Maori culture, social customs and beliefs. Without him, we would know little of the customs and traditions of these times. Best published almost a dozen monographs on all aspects of life; this edition brings them all back into print.
