Description

6.95), Carl Bock's account of his expedition to the jungles of Central Borneo in the 1870s, so fired the imagination of fellow-Norwegian Carl Lumholtz that he repeated the journey in reverse between 1913 and 1917. Packed with details of river journeys, encounters with wild animals, and sojourns with headhunters, his own recollections of this largely unexplored region are just as exciting and informative.
