About the Author
"It isn't easy to meld a raw jumble of research material into a cohesive and lively narrative but Druett has managed it with both scholarship and flair. She steers a scrupulous course between fact and speculation, and employs her novelist's instinct for a good story to augment her academic respect for history" Joan Curry, Christchurch Press, reviewing Tupaia.
"Druett's biography restores Tupaia's place in Pacific history and defines his role on the Endeavour... This reflects the originality and talent of one of New Zealand's most gifted authors" -- John Dunmore, The Listener.
"Druett's astute portrait vitally contributes to annals of exploration and cultural contact" --Gilbert Taylor, Booklist, reviewing the U.S. edition of Tupaia.
