A hugely popular account of a 1947 raft sailing trip along the Humboldt and Equatorial currents from Peru to Tahiti, where the author set out to prove that early humans could have made the trip. Not just a great adventure story, the voyage and Heyerdahl's theories have been influential in the debate over settlement of the region. With photographs.
