A VERY HAPPY AUTHOR
Huge Enthusiasm for New Zealand Edition of Tupaia
Random House (New Zealand) are the tops. Truly.
Not only is their edition of my biography of Tupaia (Tupaia: The Remarkable Story of Captain Cook's Polynesian Navigator, due in June) going to be a beautiful one, with lavish illustrations, but they are pouring huge enthusiasm into the project.
