Te Pakiwaitara o Cape Kidnappers The story of Cape kidnappers
Story re-told by Patrick Sherratt with Te Mata Kindergarten Illustrations by Sophie Blokker
This book tells the story of a historical event that happened when Captain James Cook was exploring New Zealand in 1769 and a young Tahitian boy was kidnapped by local Māori. The story takes place at Rangiika, on the southern side of Cape Kidnappers, which is also known as the tip of Matau-o-Maui (the fish hook of Maui) who in Maori legend fished up the North Island of New Zealand. Many years later this significant landmark continues to be called Cape Kidnappers and is a popular tourist attraction.
