Twenty Years In Borneo

Twenty Years In Borneo

RM49.00

The stories in this book are intended to record the lighter side of life in the tropics. They have one virtue, that of accuracy in substance. The photographs are reproductions from a collection which was started in Charles Bruce’s first month in Borneo, and is still growing. It is the author’s own efforts contributed to the collection, but the kindliness of fellow – photographers.
