The adventure of Thor Heyerdahl and his companions on their raft the Kon-Tiki has gone down in legend as a feat of endurance and courage. This is that story in his own words. Travelling across the Pacific ocean for 4,340 miles for 101 days on a wooden raft built using skills and materials only available to the pre-conquest Peruvians. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

I found the print quality of this edition to be appalling. It seems to be a low quality scan and reprint of what was probably a well worn-out book. The text is at times clogged and smeared, at times faded. Legends are cut. The images are pixelated. I have asked for a return and I will look for another edition of this book.
