As missionary and teacher, Mr. Gomes spent 17 years in Borneo and gained a thorough knowledge of the Sea Dyaks and people of the Borean jungles. His little volume for children is packed with curious information conveyed in a brisk and entertaining style. The young people of Borneo are not allowed to remain children very long owing to established custom, which forces them into marriage and family cares at an age when they should be at school.
Mr. Gomes describes the beneficent reigns of the Brookes, and of the coming of the missionaries in 1855, who built houses, churches and schools and won the love and esteem of the Dyaks by living with them in the jungle.
