    Paperback ´ Ra eBook ß Ra MOBIduring the last two days I crossed the Atlantic twice in a boat made of papyrus reeds I had already read Thor Heyerdahl's first work the one which made him famous regarding his Kon Tiki voyage from Peru to Polynesia However I don't remember being effected by that book as I was by this one Whether that is due to the slightly difference subject matter treated the change in the author's style or likely a change in my own attitude

    Paperback ´ Ra eBook ß Ra MOBIThe first part of the book describes Heyerdahl's research into reed boats in various parts of the world Northern Africa the Mediterranean South America Then there is the preparation for and building of Ra A quick crew selection and the journey commences from Safi in Morocco The Journey of Ra is a leaning exercise and falls only a few hundred miles short of achieving the goal of reaching the Americas Barbados to be exact An interlude during the book presented as a conversation amongst the crew outlines the 'coincidences' between the isolated cultures of the world as they evolved in isolation some Heyerdahl's suggests migration and dispersion but really only highlights the possibility and again the 'coincidence'There is also some highlighting of pollution a

    Paperback ´ Ra eBook ß Ra MOBII think that the first Ra expedition was a 'failure' it wasn't of course like all scientific experiments even a failure yields information sometimes as in this case information vital to later success colored the tone of this book Kon Tiki and Fatu Hiva were both written by an admittedly younger optimistic Heyerdahl this one wasn't
