Kon Tiki

by Thor Heyerdahl

Six courageous and inquisitive adventurers seek a dangerous path in order to test a hypothetical theory. On a primitive raft made of forty-foot balsa logs, named "Kon-Tiki" in honor of a legendary sun king, Thor Heyerdahl and his five comrades set out, risking their lives to prove that ancient Peruvians could have made the 4,300 mile voyage to the Polynesian islands on a raft similar to theirs. Every page of Kon Tiki- from the building of the raft and the dangerous adventures at sea, to a spectacular crash landing and the dances of the native islanders- chronicles escape from the twenty-first century.
