    1. If you like the Old Testament, you will like this book, but if you liked Paddle to the , you will love Kon Tiki I gave the latter two five stars, and the first two 2 stars.I expected annother adventure like Kon Tiki instead he talked alot about history and some culture, and this goes on for most of the book I did enjoy reading about his making the reed boat, but after they set sail I lost much interest and only read it in hopes that I would soon be reading another sea adventure And some things w [...]

    2. True to form, this mad group set out to do something truly silly and prove the brilliance of early man The book blends history and adventure well and is worth a read.

    3. Heyerdahl is ambitious, I ll grant him that His naivete can be refreshing, but often it s frustrating He expects cultures to remain essentially stagnant, and he is surprised that motorized boats have displaced reed sailboats Oh the horror He even seems somewhat shocked that the people he encounters have so willingly given up the traditional way of life in favor of modernity and progress.He s somewhat paternalistic in how he views non European cultures, and takes for granted that, obviously, eve [...]

    4. 3.5 stars Like The Kon Tiki, this book has Heyerdahl seeking to prove his theory correct by gathering a team to build a ship and do it themselves In the case of Kon Tiki, they attempted to sail from Peru to Fiji on a balsa wood raft For Tigris, his team built a ship of reeds and tried sailing from the junction of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers out to the Indian Ocean, heading west to Ethiopia I won t spoil the book by telling you whether or not they succeeded, but I will say that this had adve [...]

    5. We tend to forget that ancient civilizations flourished, had some amazing technological prowess and traveled and traded widely Heyerdahl s Tigris Expedition not only shows that it was possible but takes the reader to some of the key sites of international trade thousands of years ago Reed vessels were a common form of ocean travel see Isaiah 18 1,2 Ah, land of whirring wings that is beyond the rivers of Cush, which sends ambassadors by the sea, in vessels of papyrus on the waters Full of remarka [...]

    6. If you liked Kon Tiki, you will like this If you didn t like Kon Tiki, you didn t read it This is a great hrdcover version with lots of great color pictures Thjor Heyerdahl comes through as a bit of a 70 s pc Euroweiner though.

    7. Great adventure about the sea travel with a boat made of reed One of the great stories of Thor Heyerdahl Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in his ears a greeting of my water dragons hunters.

    8. Recommend to all who are interested in ancient civilizations sumerian, ind valley, egyptian and traveling.
