Great Barrier Island: A world of its own. Thirty minutes away by air from Auckland. Its Māori name "Aotea" seems to indicate a New World, a New Beginning, and that it was indeed when first discovered by early Polynesian explorers. This book describes its history since those ancient times. Today, 70 per cent of the land mass of the island is protected by the Department of Conservation.
