Stranger in the Forest: On Foot Across Borneo Summary


The humorous story of the author's travels in Borneo where he made lifelong friends with the Penan, jungle people who can catch fish with their feet, imitate the cry of the elusive barking deer, and survive in a fearsomely inhospitable environment. With their help Hansen learned to hunt pigs, danced in the tribal rituals, discovered the eyewatering nature of Penan sex aids and was given the ceremonial name "Rajah Kumis": King of the Moustache. He conveys how he came face to face with himself in the patch of map marked "unsurveyed", and records the experience of living in a proud and ancient tribal community based on mutual respect.
