Fatu-Hiva - Back to Nature is a book published in 1974 by archaeologist and explorer Thor Heyerdahl detailing his experiences and reflections during a one-and-a-half-year stay on the Marquesan island of Fatu Hiva in 1937-38. The book was based on Heyerdahl's original report Paa Jakt efter Paradiset, which was published in Norway in 1938, but because of the outbreak of World War II was never translated and rather forgotten.

Many of you have heard about this famous Norwegian explorer and anthropologist. Under a new name: "Fatu Hiva. Back to nature," the book was published much later, in this book have been published the new ideas of the author, after his other travels. Thor Heyerdahl visited many countries, his books were read in one breath, and then reread again, and every reader wanted to, that's the same as he, to live on a tropical island Fatu Hiva in the Marquesas, French Polynesia. His presence on Fatu Hiva, Thor launched a new, alternative theory of populated islands of Polynesia.

This is the story of Thor Heyerdahl’s first Pacific adventure long ago, before World War II. ; is man’s flight from nature really ‘progress’?. National Geographic best summarizes his life by these words: "He crossed three oceans in primitive rafts and boats to prove theories about where man has been and how he got there. Heyerdahl said his life was dominated by three challenges: to live in harmony with nature and improve it, to make his mark on the scientific community, and to build on his conception of the basic unity of mankind.

This is an amazing story of Thor Hyerdahl's misguided attempt in 1936 to have an Adam and Eve existence, as he thought nature intended. But the Garden of Eden had a few other people, and hell is other people. He didn't realize that human evolution requires being part of a social system. The story is flawed by the conspicuous use by Heyerdahl of his wife as just a prop to tell the story. Her story is not even acknowledged. Perhaps that's why they later divorced. Another flaw is the lack of background information on Fatu-Hiva, which is actually quite relevant to the story. To fully enjoy this story, read his earlier summary published in the January 1941 issue of National Geographic. That article also references an earlier 1920 article which gives additional background to Fatu-Hiva's history and customs. (You can view these articles on the National Geographic website.) I suspect Hyerdahl actually read the excellent 1920 article before he selected Fatu-Hiva as his destination. Also, take a look at Fatu-Hiva on Google Earth. You can see it hasn't changed much. And if you look carefully you can see what could be the two huts described when they lived on the beach with the ex-cannibal.

Thor Heyerdahl believed that it would be possible to escape modern civilisation and recreate paradise by fleeing to a remote island and living only by what he found there. In 1936, before flying became common, with literally no communication possible from the island apart from the occasional passage of a ship, he and his wife certainly "got away from it all". They partly achieved their aim of self-sufficiency, but within months illness, the risk of disease, the presence of the islanders, who could not imagine what Thor and Liv were really looking for, made them slowly realise that paradise is not a place you can locate on a map. Modern civilisation, with all its faults can also be a great benefit, particularly when you need medical treatment for a life-threatening injury! They end up hiding from the islanders in a cave, anxiously waiting for the next ship to pass! An exciting adventure story, with a deep philosophical message.

Non-fiction story how a scientist and his new wife live on a island with natives. Excellent
  • Dandr
I saw this book at my son's library and just had to have one for myself as I have just came back from visiting Nuku-Hiva and was eager to read more about this island and its fascinating inhabitants.

Thor is the ultimate explorer/adventurer. He makes you feel like you've actually been there! We need some modern-day Thor Heyerdahl's!
Excellent product just as advertised
