The Kon-Tiki Expedition
The balsawood raft Kon-Tiki was built in Peru in 1947 using long logs from Equador. A crew of six sailed her from Callào in Peru to the island of Raroia in Polynesia. In 101 days the Kon-Tiki put behind her around 5,000 miles of the Pasific Ocean. The trip proved that Polynesia was indeed within the range of balsawood rafts from South America. A documentary of the voyage won an Oscar in 1951, and the book about the expedition has been translated into no fewer than 66 languages.
