Kon-Tiki is the file of an magnificent adventure—a adventure of 4,300 nautical miles around the Pacific Ocean via raft. Intrigued via Polynesian folklore, biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands were settled via an historical race from lots of miles to the east, led via a mythical hero, Kon-Tiki. He determined to turn out his conception via duplicating the mythical voyage.
On April 28, 1947, Heyerdahl and 5 different adventurers sailed from Peru on a balsa log raft. After 3 months at the open sea, encountering raging storms, whales, and sharks, they sighted land—the Polynesian island of Puka Puka.
Translated into sixty-5 languages, Kon-Tiki is a vintage, inspiring story of bold and braveness—an impressive saga of guys in opposition to the ocean.
