The Kon-Tiki Expedition


The story of Thor Heyerdahl's expedition to cross the Pacific Ocean on a balsa-wood raft.

In 1947 Heyerdahl and five others made an extraordinary bid to prove the theory that the Polynesians undertook the same feat on such a craft over 1000 years ago.

Updated with a new epilogue to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the voyage, this classic tale of survival against almost insurmountable odds remains one of the most fascinating and exciting expeditionary accounts ever written.

'the most absorbing sea tale of our time.' New Yorker
