Gossage's classic retelling of the Maori myth of Maui and Mahuika, the Goddess of Fire.
Maui the trickster wants to know what will happen if he puts out all the fires in his pa.
When his people wake they are very angry and Maui must go to the volcano to visit Mahuika, the goddess of fire.
Peter Gossage's superbly retold stories of Maui are now New Zealand classics.
