Description

Two Worlds is Anne Salmond's ward-winning account of the first points of contact between Maori and European explorers. It is a provocative, penetrating re-examination of those dramatic first meetings, casting them in a completely new light. Two Worlds is a work of trail-blazing significance. Two Worlds won the non-fiction section of the 1992 New Zealand Book Awards and was awarded third prize in the 1992 Goodman Fielder Wattie Book Awards. Anne Salmond received the 1990-91 Ernest Scott Prize, awarded by the University of Melbourne, for Two Worlds.
