This is an auction for KON-TIKI AND I by Erik Hesselberg. reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! What an incredibly charming book. Erik Hesselberg documents the 4000 mile Kon-Tiki balsa raft voyage which Thor Heyerdahl organized between Peru to Polynesia in 1947. This book - originally published in 1949 - is a true classic and definitely should be reprinted especially since the Norwegian government is producing a new Kon-Tiki Film to come out September 2012. No other book tells the story in such an entertaining succinct way. The sketches that Hesselberg made on the voyage are incredible. The book is biographical, historical, scientific - all rolled into one with charm and genuineness. Not just for kids. It's easy for grownups to love this book too."

"FIVE STARS!!! I read the original Kon Tiki book by Heyerdahl and absolutely loved it so when I discovered there was another book about this adventure written by Hesselberg, I just HAD to buy it too! What a wonderful, simple, entertaining account of that journey! Hesselberg demonstrates his humor and gives the reader a more personal view of what transpired. It parallels identically with Heyerdahl's book, even down to descriptions of aquatic life encountered as well as the building of the Kon Tiki raft. I highly recommend this enchanting book for all ages. What a treasure!!!!"
