My “Kon-Tiki” book from when I was about 8-years old! Click to ENLARGE.

I have known of Thor Heyerdahl for most of my life! My adoptive father was a huge fan of his and he introduced me to ‘Kon-Tiki’ when I was quite young, probably around 8.

As you can see I have a “Kon-Tiki” book, with my name written on it — in what I recognize as my very young signature, where I am trying to imitate that of my adoptive father. I, obviously, still have that book — and it is well traveled.

So, Thor, is no stranger to I.

He is probably not that well known in the U.S.A.

Nonetheless, an interesting man, though many of his theories have now been seriously questioned.
