A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Many Maori place names date back to the very earliest days of habitation in Aotearoa New Zealand. Some, in fact, originated in the Hawaiki homeland and were adapted to the new land. Whatever their origin, most reflect the Maori's closeness to the forces of nature and incorporate common words for everyday things. Lavishly illustrated, this dictionary explains and interprets over 1500 place names as well as providing a guide to pronunciation.

About the Author:

Born in 1908 in Auckland, A.W. Reed joined his uncle A.H. Reed's religious supply business in Dunedin in 1925, and established its general book publishing business in Wellington in 1932. Until his retirement in 1971, he helped build A.H. & A.W. Reed into New Zealand's leading publishing house. A prolific author as well as a publisher, he penned over 200 books on a vast range of topics covering New Zealand, the South Pacific and Australia. Seven of his books are in print today, including the Reed Concise Maori Dictionary and the Reed Dictionary of Maori Place Names. He died in 1979.

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
