New Zealand History Links

New Zealand Flora and Fauna

Instead of rabbiting on at length about what we are doing for New Zealand History, alongside chapter 10 in Story of the World Vol.2, I'll type a quick overview of what we're using for early/middle ages NZ History and then share all the links we currently have in our files for others to enjoy as they wish.

We are doing early New Zealand history and have chosen to make our 'science' New Zealand flora and fauna during this time.
Polynesian Explorers by Kathryn Rountree (oop)
The Fish of Maui by Peter Gossage

DVD: What Lies Beneath

Look under the Leaves by Elsie Locke (oop)
If you can source this book, we think it is a worthy purchase, Locke's focus is primarily on the NZ eco-system and nature study which she has undergirdered with our history.
