Omtale Green was the earth on the seventh day
Green was the Earth on the Seventh Day is a very special kind of autobiography. A docomentary account of the year spent by Thor Heyerdahl and his wife on the remote, unspoiled South Pasific island of Fatu . Hiva in the late 1930s, it is also a deeply evocative, moving statement of ideas and belifs which would shape Heyerdahl`s own life of exploration and the environmental concerns of successive generations.

Heyerdahl`s memoir charts how the dreams of a lifetime knife, an iron pot and the determination to succeed, they survived encounters with islanders friendly and frightening, with giant centipedes and scant resources, and with the realisation that a dwelling madde of timber in the tropics has a tendency to keep on growing; but also that the stars in their eyes could no more be extinguished than the stars in the sky.
