Ra is the story of Heyerdahl's voyage from North Africa to South America in a 45 ft papyrus boat modelled on those depicted in the pharoah's wall paintings. A violent storm ended the first expedition but within a year the seven men had embarked on their second journey in Ra II.
Thor Heyerdahl was born in Norway in 1914. He received the Order of Merit or similar decorations from Peru, Italy, Egypt, Morocco, Bulgaria, Norway and Sweden. He wrote many books on early travel and sea exploration. He died in April 2002.
