THE epic journey of the 20th century
It would be hard to estimate the impact of this story on the imaginations of many an adventurist soul in the 50+ years of its publication.
Anthropology meets daring sailing expidition. In an era purporting the sanctity of the scientist's laboratory as ultimate authority, Thor Heyerdahl and his scandinavian crew give life to his dream and prove that the larger world is the laboratory we live in.
This account of 103 day crossing the Pacific ocean on a balsa-log raft is a must read, not just for adventurists or sailors, but for anyone with a dream.
