Written by Ernest Hemingway | translated into te reo Māori by Greg Koia

This is the te reo Māori translation of The Old Man and the Sea - Hemingway’s classic story of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish – now translated into te reo Māori.

In the baking sun, in a small village off the coast of Havana, lives an old fisherman named Santiago. It has been eighty-four days since he last caught a fish. The locals call it bad luck. Refusing to accept defeat, Santiago sets off in his tiny skiff alone, fishing further out than ever before. Over a number of days his will and his character are tested beyond imagination.

Hemingway’s classic short novel won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and directly led to his Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. The Old Man and the Sea is a perfectly crafted story and a unique vision of one man’s challenge to the elements.
