In the late 1930s, the young Thor Heyerdahl set out with his new wife to find paradise - a natural, unspoiled world they sought in the South Pacific. It would be the first of many journeys of his and the beginning of a destiny that would bring world-wide renown as an anthropologist, explorer, author and pioneering environmentalist. This account of the time he spent on the remote island of Fatu-Hiva is based on his original journals and describes a magical year of hope, excitement and unexpected danger.
