    during the last two days, I crossed the Atlantic twice in a boat made of papyrus reeds I had already read Thor Heyerdahl s first work, the one which made him famous, regarding his Kon Tiki voyage from Peru to Polynesia However, I don t remember being effected by that book as I was by this one Whether that is due to the slightly difference subject matter treated, the change in the author s style, orlikely a change in my own attitude, I do not know While the book is, like Kon Tiki, prima during the last two days, I crossed the Atlantic twice in a boat made of papyrus reeds I had already read Thor Heyerdahl s first work, the one which made him famous, regarding his Kon Tiki voyage from Peru to Polynesia However, I don t remember being effected by that book as I was by this one Whether that is due to the slightly difference subject matter treated, the change in the author s style, orlikely a change in my own attitude, I do not know While the book is, like Kon Tiki, primarily about sailing an ancient boat across a huge, angry ocean, it starts with about 100 pages of Thor traveling all around the world learning about reed boats and finding the things he needs to build one.I guess right now I just want to be an adventurer like him Perhaps an academic career is one of the only ways to see some parts of the world Antarctica and all those remote tribes that still li...

    I first read this book when in high school nearly 40 years ago, and was surprised this time by some of the scenes I remembered in vivid detail This time the book was eveninteresting because I followed Heyerdahl s travels on Wikimapia and could zoom in on satellite photos of the topography he was describing including Lake Titicaca, Lake Chad, the Gulf of California, Ethiopia, and Morocco.It was interesting to read again the evidence the author presented regarding a possible influence of I first read this book when in high school nearly 40 years ago, and was surprised this time by some of the scenes I remembered in vivid detail This time the book was eveninteresting because I followed Heyerdahl s travels on Wikimapia and could zoom in on satellite photos of the topography ...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I think that the first Ra expedition was a failure it wasn t, of course like all scientific experiments, even a failure yields information, sometimes, as in this case, information vital to later success colored the tone of this book Kon Tiki and Fatu Hiva were both written by an admittedly younger,...
