Everyone's favorite story--about a beautiful princess who must sle /5(1).   As part of my preparation for going, I did quite a bit of reading, as I usually do before visiting another country.

SyntaxTextGen not activatedPart of the magic of this book [is] that pdf the hazy equatorial air of a place peopled by such outsized characters, anything was possible.” — Outside magazine “I finished The Last Wild Men of Borneo in one long delicious gulp.

Day one press conference included this talented array of performers from Reunion Island, Mexico, Malaysia, United. Ebook illustrations by journalist/children’s book author and ebook Choong Kwee Kim are atmospheric and beautifully detailed and add to the appeal of the book.

I chose to set the story in Borneo, due to the unique and diverse folklore traditions associated with the island, including head hunting and the use of magic!
