TUPAIA TRANSLATED INTO FRENCH


<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Joan Druett tire de l’oubli un personage d’une grande force, dont l’histoire n’avait jamais été racontée de façon aussi exhaustive et dramatique.


Historian and novelist, Joan Druett won the General Non-Fiction Category Award for her work, Tupaia: The Remarkable Story of Captain Cook's Polynesian Navigator.

"Tupaia's richly detailed drawings and paintings are a precious legacy and are stunningly reproduced in a book which will intrigue and inspire. Everything about Tupaia reflects Druett's careful research and passion for her subject.

"This is a wonderful book." -- Judges' report.
