This is an enthralling book," Hamilton Lasso wrote in The New Yorker of Kon-Tiki , "and I don't think I can be very far off in calling it the most absorbing sea tale of our time. Kon-Tiki is the story of how he and five others built the raft, as people of the Stone Age could build it, and traveled in it from Peru to a small island east of Tahitia "most fascinating description of intelligent courage. He has adduced further corroboration of his theory from the findings in The Archaeology of Easter Island In the spring of , Heyerdahl was engaged in a new experimentplanning to cross the Atlantic from Morocco to Yucatan in a ton papyrus boat that he and others built themselves in the manner of the ancient Egyptians. In spite of general skepticism as to whether the boat, called the Ra, could make the journey without sinking when it became thoroughly water-soaked, Heyerdahl and six others set out in full confidence.
