Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific by Raft (Wsp Enriched&hellip von Thor Heyerdahl
Although Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific over fifty years ago, his adventures teach us more about men's borders and our possibilities than any computer-games could do.

This is no fiction, this a piece of literature which tells us a real history, therefore a thrilling history. I wasn't able to stop reading Kon-Tiki, and so will everybody, who's interested in ancient history, animals of the pacific, other cultures and finally adventures, off course.
