Kon Tiki is the record of an astonishing adventure a journey nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft Intrigued by Polynesian folklore biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an ancient race from thousands of miles. Is there a greater classic among adventure books than the reckless Thor Heyerdahl’s story about a 104 day long raft ride through the Pacific in 1947 It is just as crazy as it is heroic and makes your jaw drop everytime The 6 men fighting the elements on a hand made balsa wood vesel are at the mercy of the acient Gods of South America and the Pacific Encounters with wonderful Verne like creatures of the sea bring the Pacific to life Suids and giant sharks are right under your feet fish and octopus fly into your face daily You just have to put your toothbrush in the water and a fish bites on it vehemently Myths accompany the Scandinavian crew all the way it’s an uplifting tale of a pursuit of dreams Mandatory for armchair explorers I am prepared to fight everyone who says it’s a children’s book
