Cook Islands, Peru: Kon Tiki

A true classic: On April 28, 1947, the author and five other adventurers sailed from Peru on a balsa log raft. After three months on the open sea, encountering raging storms, whales, and sharks, they sighted land – the Polynesian island of Puka Puka. This is the record of an astonishing adventure – a journey of 4,300 nautical miles.
