's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: geography

Some people imagine very little, some imagine doing things & do very little, other people imagine doing things & plunge right in. Heyerdahl is certainly in the latter category. This bk enjoyed decades of popularity & a zillion printings & I'm glad it did. Anyone who has the chutzpah to put forth a theory about ancient transoceanic travel & who then goes about attempting to prove its feasability by actually building a giant raft from scratch & sailing it across the Pacific is somebody that I admire to no end! Besides, I learned from this bk that "Mai-Tai", one of my favorite cocktails, is Polynesian for "I like it".
