Kon Tiki

by Thor Heyerdahl, Kon Tiki Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kon Tiki books, “One of the great adventures of our time.” —Life “Am going to cross Pacific on a wooden raft to support a theory that the South Sea islands were peopled from Peru. Will you come? . . . Reply at once.” That is how six brave and inquisitive men came to seek a dangerous path to test a scientific theory. On a primitive raft made of forty-foot balsa logs and named “Kon-Tiki” in honor of a legendary sun king, Thor Heyerdahl and five companions deliberately risked their lives to show that the ancient Peruvians could have made the 4,300-mile voyage to the Polynesian islands on a similar craft. For three months, the bold young men made their way across the pacific at the complete mercy of the ocean. They encountered storms that threatened to tear their raft apart, whales large enough to sink them in the blink of an eye, and sharks ready to feast on any man unfortunate enough to fall overboard. In the true spirit of adventure, they held on until finally making landfall on a remote Polynesian island, proving Heyerdahl’s theory possible after all. On every page of this true chronicle—from the actual building of the raft through all the dangerous and comic adventures on the sea, to the spectacular crash landing and the native islanders’ hula dances—each reader will find a wholesome and spellbinding escape from the twenty-first century.

Kon Tiki

by Thor Heyerdahl, Kon Tiki Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kon Tiki books, Now a major motion picture, Kon-Tiki is the record of Thor Heyerdahl’s astonishing three-month voyage across the Pacific. Kon-Tiki is the record of an astonishing adventure -- a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft. Intrigued by Polynesian folklore, biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an ancient race from thousands of miles to the east, led by a mythical hero, Kon-Tiki. He decided to prove his theory by duplicating the legendary voyage. On April 28, 1947, Heyerdahl and five other adventurers sailed from Peru on a balsa log raft. After three months on the open sea, encountering raging storms, whales, and sharks, they sighted land -- the Polynesian island of Puka Puka. Translated into sixty-five languages, Kon-Tiki is a classic, inspiring tale of daring and courage -- a magnificent saga of men against the sea. Washington Square Press' Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of Kon-Tiki has been prepared by an editorial committee headed by Harry Shefter, professor of English at New York University. It includes a foreword by the author, a selection of critical excerpts, notes, an index, and a unique visual essay of the voyage.

Download The Impossible Voyage Of Kon Tiki books, Read Along or Enhanced eBook: Combining history with culture, the ocean with exploration, and risk with triumph—this rich offering is the only picture book account of Thor Heyerdahl's world-famous Kon-Tiki expedition, during which he sailed a raft 5,000 miles from the coast of South America to the islands of the South Pacific. Author Deborah Kogan Ray clearly and succinctly sets up how Norwegian anthropologist Heyerdahl became convinced that ancient Peruvians arrived in the South Pacific via raft, why he wanted to re-create the voyage, and how he planned for it. She uses primary-source quotations on each spread to shore up the factual history of the events portrayed in the book. Her illustrations add emotion to this harrowing journey.

Download Kon Tiki Auf Dem Murmelsee books, Vor einiger Zeit hattet Ihr den hübschen Einfall, ein Floß zu bauen, dass Euch alle trägt. Wir haben oft darüber gestritten, ob sich Euer Abenteuerwunsch erfüllen lässt oder nicht. Euch schien es ein Leichtes zu sein, während ich skeptisch war. Mir erschien es unmöglich, dass Jungen in einer Großstadt wie Berlin eine solche Idee verwirklichen können. So schrieb ich eine Geschichte, in der ein Junge dieses Floßabenteuer träumt. Diese Traum-Geschichte hat Euch ganz und gar nicht gefallen. Mike stiegen gar Zornestränen in die Augen. Ich musste versprechen, eine Geschichte zu schreiben, in der Kinder dieses Floß nicht träumen sondern bauen. Also setzte ich mich hin und begann von neuem zu schreiben.
