Fever Trees of Borneo

Fever Trees of Borneo Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An intrepid adventurer, Mark has spent the last decade traveling areas left ominously blank on maps. This is the story of his malaria-wracked expedition across central Borneo. Once again he defies cartographers by going in search of the 'wild men of Borneo'—a tribe of jungle dwellers whose existence is validated only by myth. With fellow traveler Paul he paddles up an uncharted river into what was believed to be the valley of the spirit world—where even the island's fiercest head hunters fear to go. Crossing treacherous mountains that no Western eye has ever seen, they penetrate ever deeper into the inhospitable jungle. On the way they encounter shipwrecks, malaria, amoebic dysentery, near-starvation, leeches, exhaustion, enforced alcohol abuse, a barbecued mouse-deer foetus and a ferocious craving for chocolate.

Synopsis:

The story of how two Englishmen crossed the remotest heights of Central Borneo in search of the Punan tribe, Borneo's last remaining independent jungle dwellers. Using trails no western eye had seen before, they ventured to try and make contact with 'the lost tribe', reputedly made up of 'the wild men of Borneo'. The book builds the reader's anticipation for the success of the expedition. Do they find 'The Wild Men of Borneo'?

Synopsis:

As a winner of European Travel Awards such as the highly prestigious Independent Traveller of the Year, Eveleigh has achieved much acclaim as the new young face of exploration. Fever Trees of Borneo is the story of his malariawracked expedition across central Borneo.

On the way they encounter shipwreck, malaria, amoebic dysentery, near starvation, leeches, exhaustion, enforced alcohol abuse, barbecued mouse-deer fetus and a ferocious craving for chocolate!
