Battle of the Mountains

Battle of the Mountains

By  Peter Gossage

Gossage's classic retelling of the Maori myth of how Mt Taranaki, Mt Tauhara and Mt Putauaki came to stand where they are today.

Tongariro is forced to battle three strong mountains, Taranaki, Tauhara and Putauaki, to keep his wife, Pihanga, safe from them.
This is the story of how he successfully banishes them to the positions where they stand today.
