And when he piloted Ra II, an Egyptian reed boat, from North Africa to the shores of the Caribbean, he was trying to show how men from the earliest known civilizations could have reached the New World by sea. This rich collection of essays, filled with facts and speculations on subjects ranging from primitive navigation techniques, ocean winds and currents to Columbus, the Vikings, and the striking similarities between cultures separated by legions of ocean, is the result of such explorations, the hard core of what Heyerdahl learned and the work for which he will ultimately be remembered.

Here is the compelling evidence for his long time theory that men were crossing the oceans - spreading both their cultures and there genes - thousands of years before Columbus.
