I enjoyed this book. Really got me thonking about how we as mankind are treating the Earth, our home.
The author did a good job of using illustrations to drive home his points.

Before Kon-Tiki, Thor Heyerdahl and his young bride Liv
departed Norway for Polynesia, to escape European civilization
and live in complete harmony with nature. This beautiful and
impassioned memoir describes their time and lays the
philosophical and ethical groundwork for Heyerdahl's
remarkable career as an explorer/scientist and one of the
planet's premier environmentalists. Part memoir, part
environmental manifesto, this belongs on the bookshelf of
anyone who's dreamed of getting back to nature, or who has
any sort of environmental passion. An important book by one
of the most remarkable men of the century.

Twenty years ago I read Heyerdahl's first book about his year-long stay on Fatu-Hiva. Now out of print, but renewed in this book, is the vivid recollection of his time when the rest of the world stood still and he and his new bride explored a strange new culture and began the process of discovery not only for themselves but for all of us

This is great book about Heyerdahl's adventures and philosophies before and which inspired Kon-Tiki. Unfortunately, for me, it is an exact, word-for-word copy of Fatu Hiva - except for the title.
