Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific by Raft - Thor Heyerdahl

This quote was added by msantema
By late afternoon the trade wind was already blowing at full strength. It quickly stirred up the ocean into roaring seas. Contrary to all warnings, the Kon-Tiki proved to be seaworthy, and the current carried the raft farther and farther into the ocean. They were now in the thrall of the powerful westward trade wind. There was no turning back.
