Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A celebration of Maori heroes. Alan Duff has selected 50 Maori, all of whom are high-achieving, talented and inspiring. Some of them are household names, for example Kiri Te Kanawa, Sir Howard Morrison and Zinan Brooke, and others are less well-known.

"A project supported by the Alan Duff Charitable Foundation's Books in Homes"--P. [3].

Includes bibliographical references (p. 141) and index.
