About This Book

Illustrated with 250 colour photographs, this magnificent study of the world's third largest island reveals a land of hidden riches. Through an extended introductory profile and separate chapters on the land, people and wildlife, the story of Borneo unfolds; its complex history from early civilisations through Asian and European influences to the present day; its peoples - from hunters, farmers and traders to the modern business community; its rich diversity of flora and fauna; the rivers, mountains, forests and coasts that define the island's topography; and Borneo's role today, as the country faces the challenge of embracing the modern world whilst working to conserve an irreplaceable natural and cultural heritage.
