A Maori war canoe being paddled a full speed is an awesome sight. Thanks to the renaissance in canoe building, more and more traditional waka taua are on the waterways, and feature in major events like the Queen Elizabeth II's Jubilee.

With numerous historical and contemporary photographs and drawings, this easy-to-read book is the perfect reference for these amazing craft. Waka Taua includes guidelines for sailing and paddling instructions, along with a helpful glossary.
