In the Footsteps of Adam, Paperback

In the Footsteps of Adam Paperback



Thor Heyerdahl is one of the greatest explorers of our day.

At the age of 84 he has chosen to take a journey through his memories.

This is not a chronological autobiography but rather an epic exploration of the world and the amazing events that Heyerdahl has pioneered, participated in and observed.

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ADAM is an account of life where personal experiences of a dramatic and emotional nature - secret missions during the war and near-fatal accidents - are woven together with his views on religious fatih politics and ecology.

It is a book that focuses on the author's own remarkable life, and also brings us back to the dawn of civilization and out into the future.

Thor Heyerdahl has spent a long lifetime wandering in the footsteps of mankind.

He invites the reader to participate in that journey by sharing generously the details of his private and public life, his accumulated wisdom, and his friendships with a wide range of influential world leaders such as Fidel Castro and Mikhail Gorbachev.
