When Thor Heyerdahl landed his Kon-Tiki raft on a tiny South Pacific atoll in 1947, he had wrought the missing link in the massive chain of evidence he was forging in support of his theory on origins of the Polynesian peoples. Now, for the first time, he sets forth in detail his reasons for believing that early Polynesians came, not directly from Asia, but from the Americas. 7.5x10", xv+821 pp., maps, 90 plates from photographs (including 8 in color).
