Product Review

"The subtitle of this book is not only suggestive; it is a completely accurate comment on the life described in its pages...Jeff Evans tells the story of this remarkable life with a deep appreciation of Hec's personality and achievements."Aaron Smale - Mana
"This is the story of many journeys, but perhaps the greatest of all was that of Heke-nuku-mai-nga-iwi Busby's own life, from school leaver at 15 to master navigator. Kiwis deserve to know about men like him who follow their life's passions so keenly."Gerry Te Kapa Coates - Landfall
"It remains a mystery to me why we have Sir Peter Blake's vessel at the viaduct in Auckland and yet we do not have the Aurere there too. It's like having a choir with the tenors missing. It's only half the song...It's a brilliant and exciting read"Nickie Muir - Northern Advocate
