Annotation

In the late 1930s, Thor Heyerdahl left his home in Norway and set off with his new wife for paradise. Fulfilling a long-held ambition to return to nature, the couple sought, and to a degree found, a natural and unspoiled world on the remote island of Fatu-Hiva in the South Pacific. Based on his original journals, Heyerdahl's documentary account charts how the dreams of a lifetime were transformed into a year of hope, excitement and unexpected danger. A story of love and adventure, the autobiography is also an impassioned plea for the preservation of the Earth against the tide of pollution and the pursuit of profit - ideas and beliefs which would shape one man's life and the environmental concerns of successive generations.
