The Raft

£7.99

Product description

Huruka’s new boat has disappeared. It is not the first act of aggression by the Redskins against the peace-loving Long-Eared tribe, but when Huruka, trying to retrieve his property, wounds two Redskins, it brings a renewal of strife. The next time it is not merely a boat, but young Prince Uru and his tutor who are captured and humiliated by the fierce Redskin warriors. When Prince Uru escapes and goes back to his people, accompanied by Ima Sumac, the Redskin princess, who has befriended him in captivity, the Long-Ears decide they must take to the sea on rafts and find new and peaceful homelands, following the path westward of their sun god, Kon-Tiki.

This particular copy is in very good condition. Its exterior has only slight signs of wear. There are scuffs to its edges from shelf storage and the jacket has small tears on the front and back cover. As for the interior, its pages are clean and free of any writing, highlighting or markings.

Translated by Katya Sheppard with an illustrated jacket and illustrations scattered through the book.

This is exciting and unusual children’s story, full of background detail of South America and of a far-off era long before recorded history.
