"a tribute to our better natures"

The Guardian

Heyerdahl visited Easter Island in 1955 and 1956 as he tried to determine if the island had been originally colonised by people who sailed from South America across 2,000 miles of ocean. Returning to the island over thirty years later, Heyerdahl investigated the ruins of the island's unique statues, monolithic human figures carved from rock, and experimented with techniques that might have allowed a pre-industrial culture to create and move such enormous figures. Illustrated with full-colour photographs throughout, Easter Island is Heyerdahl's unique history of Easter 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.
