Description of Kon Tiki : Across the Pacific by Raft
“Kon-Tiki” is the document of an astonishing journey – a journey 4,300 nautical miles throughout the Pacific Ocean by raft. Intrigued by Polynesian folklore, biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an historic race from hundreds of miles to the east, led by the legendary hero Kon-Tiki. He determined to show his principle by duplicating the legendary voyage. On April 28, 1947, Heyerdahl and 5 different adventurers sailed from Peru on a balsa log raft. After three suspenseful months on the open sea, alone amongst raging storms, whales and numerous sharks, they sighted land – the polynesian island of Puka Puka. Translated into 65 languages, read by tens of millions throughout the world, “Kon-Tiki” is a basic, inspiring story of daring and braveness – a powerful saga of males towards the sea. present extra
