Kaitiakitanga,an ancient Maori concept meaning guardianship of the land, has undergone a revival in New Zealand and is fueling an increasingly popular eco-movement. Structured by Richard Bangs as a grand adventure, this book looks at how the Maori way is becoming the modern way. Bangs expedition includes heli-hiking, ice-climbing, kayaking, and more as he travelsthrough New Zealands stunning landscapes. Along the way, the author encounters threatened wildlife, massive trees that predate Christ, monumental glaciers, and the kinds of advances fostered by kaitiakitanga, from radically designed eco-lodges to paradigm-shifting native ventures.
