Green Was The Earth On The Seventh Day Zusammenfassung

Green Was The Earth On The Seventh Day Thor Heyerdahl

In the late 1930s, Thor Heyerdahl left his home in Norway and set off with his new wife for paradise. Fulfilling a long-held ambition to return to nature, the couple sought, and to a degree found, a natural and unspoiled world on the remote island of Fatu-Hiva in the South Pacific. Based on his original journals, Heyerdahl's documentary account charts how the dreams of a lifetime were transformed into a magical year of hope, excitement and unexpected danger. A timeless story of love and adventure, GREEN WAS THE EARTH... is also an impassioned plea for the preservation of the cities and the seas against the tide of pollution and the pursuit of profit, ideas and beliefs, a cry which would shape one man's life and the environmental concerns of successive generations.

Powerful and poignant, GREEN WAS THE EARTH ON THE SEVENTH DAY is a very special kind of autobiography.

Green Was The Earth On The Seventh Day Bewertungen

A message which is all the more powerful for its simplicity * The TIMES *
His book is very valuable, as both a cautionary tale and one of the most lucid accounts we have of the practical consequences of desert-island idealism * PUNCH *
Lovingly written... Heyerdahl's unquenchable sense of wonder gives this book a rare charm -- Brian Masters * Mail on Sunday *
This marvellous book is a plea not for a return to the ways of primitive Man but for man now to preserve the environment -- The Times * Libby Purves *
Sincere and unaffected... he has some perceptive points to make about man's abusive relationship with his environment * Literary Review *
