The story of a daring voyage by the author and five companions on board a primitive raft from the coast of Peru to the Pacific Islands. Mr Heyerdahl was convinced that the original Polynesians had come by sea from South America, and to prove that such a voyage was possible at that remote period, he and his party built the Kon-Tiki, similar to the rafts then used, and embarked on it.
After a voyage full of danger but packed with interest they reached the islands where Kon-Tiki was wrecked on a coral reef.
Well illustrated with numerous b&w photos.
