Thor Heyerdahl

“In 1947, Heyerdahl and a crew of five men set out to prove that it was possible that Polynesia had been settled by South Americans by re-creating the conditions of such a voyage. The result was a ripping yarn that has been translated into at least 65 languages and is now considered a classic. This edition also features a reader’s supplement section, which includes literary criticism, notes on allusions, and a piece on the changing nature of anthropology.”
