Easter Island: The Mystery Solved
A thrilling, fully illustrated account of one of the greatest adventures by one of the 20th century’s most famous travelers, Thor Heyerdahl
Easter Island is one of the most remote places in the world and acclaimed archaeologist Thor Heyerdahl spent much of his life investigating the mystery of the island’s famed, ancient statues. Heyerdahl visited Easter Island in 1955 and 1956 as he tried to determine if the island had been originally colonized by people who sailed from South America across 2,000 miles of ocean. Returning to the island more than 30 years later, Heyerdahl investigated the ruins of the island’s unique monolithic human figures carved from rock, and experimented with techniques that could have allowed a pre-industrial culture to create and move such enormous figures. This reissue of a previously out-of-print classic is Heyerdahl’s unique history of the island, based on his own research, and an interpretation of the mystery of the island’s statues that presents an individual view of world history.
