From the isolation of New Zealand over eons of time have come the unique character of a large number of its endemic seashells. This book describes and illustrates in colour 150 different seashells found around New Zealand 's coasts. They are known to the Māori people as "Hinemoana's family". She is the Ocean Maiden, the personified form of the ocean, and the grand-daughter of the god Tāne.
