In this book, Māori traditional stories, understandings and history stand alongside geothermal science in an exploration of the thermal phenomena of the Volcanic Plateau. Beautiful photographs show the hot pools, rising steam, geysers, bubbling mud and thermal formations that visitors see, and the text provides information about the natural history of the area, its formation and its significance to Māori.

Part of a series of books produced with Te Puia, also available are the titles Marae: The Heart of Māori Culture, Māori Carving: The Art of Recording Māori History and Māori Weaving: The Art of Creating Māori Textiles.
