Summary
"New Zealanders are water babies -- most live close to the water, whether it be the sea, rivers or lakes. A land of water tells the story of our waterways and of our enduring relationships with this marvellous life-giving resource. From the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South, author Pamela McGeorge provides details of the sources of our major lakes and rivers and describes the routes they take to the sea. Along the way she retells Ma¿¿ori legends and stories of the past, recounts the fascinating histories of many lakes and rivers, and examines the importance they have for all of us today"--Book Cover
