Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Full colour drawings in a modern style illustrate the story of the meeting and falling in love of Turongo and Mahinarangi, two ancestors of the Tainui tribe. Turongo and Mahinarangi are also the names of two wharenui on the Turangawaewae Marae in Ngaruawahia. Soft cover.

Turongo was a mighty warrior who was also a great carver and fisherman. Through the jealousy of his brother he was forced to leave his home and spent many years travelling the land. When he meets a beautiful woman, Mahinarangi, Turongo is determined to make her his wife. But how will he achieve his wish?

Suggested level: primary, intermediate.

In English with some Māori.
