Aku-Aku, the Secret of Easter Island is a 1958 book by Thor Heyerdahl that described his research at Rano Raraku and Anakena on the many giant stone statues or moai found on Easter Island and the culture that created them. The book and a follow-up film of the same name made a major contribution to general public awareness of both the island and the statues, outside the anthropological and archaeological communities.
