Read this book over 40 years ago, and found it so inspiring that I never forgot it. I would highly recommend it for any age from adolescence on. An amazing account of what the human spirit is capable of.

Some Norwegians take a very long boat ride; what a fantastic story. I actually saw the original Kon-Tiki in Oslo, great read for a history buff.
