Description - Green Was The Earth On The Seventh Day by 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 year of hope, excitement and unexpected danger. A story of love and adventure, the autobiography is also an impassioned plea for the preservation of the Earth against the tide of pollution and the pursuit of profit - ideas and beliefs which would shape one man's life and the environmental concerns of successive generations.
