A compilation of printed and manuscript information on the healing practices of the New Zealand Maori ... does not claim to be complete ... "Maori healing and health topics" ... draws together all the available information on spiritual healing and then directs the reader to the relevant herbs. The "Maori herbal remedies" section includes over 200 plants ... In all cases the exact words of informants or writers are quoted, translations from Maori being undertaken for the most part by Tairongo Amoamo of the Whakatohea tribe.
