Am going to cross Pacific on a wooden raft to support a theory that the South Sea islands were peopled from Peru. Will you come?...Reply at once. That is how six brave & inquisitive men came to seek a dangerous path to test a scientific theory.MoreAm going to cross Pacific on a wooden raft to support a theory that the South Sea islands were peopled from Peru. Will you come?...Reply at once. That is how six brave & inquisitive men came to seek a dangerous path to test a scientific theory.On a primitive raft made of 40 balsa logs & named Kon-Tiki in honor of a legendary sun king, Heyerdahl & five companions deliberately risked their lives to show that the ancient Peruvians could have made the 4300-mile voyage to the Polynesian islands on similar craft.Life on the raft was strange & wonderful.

Perhaps the most amazing part of the whole voyage was that not once during the 101 days were the men bored. The always present danger of storms (& the storms themselves), the eternal, ever-changing sea & sky, & their own ingenuity took care of that. & the huge company of fish. They encountered the rare whale shark--Walt Disney, with all his powers of imagination, could not have created a more hair-raising monster--& they were the 1st men ever to see a live snake mackerel.On every page of this true record--from the actual building of the raft thru all the dangerous & comic adventures on the sea to the spectacular crash-landing & the native islanders hula dances--each reader will find a wholesome & spellbinding escape from the 20th century.
