In 1972, Huie joined her husband in the wild frontier town of Balikpapan on the east coast of Indonesian Borneo and spent the next decade living in the rapidly developing country of Indonesia under the rule of President Suharto. In this biographical account of that time, Huie recalls her experiences of the best and worst this extraordinary country had to offer. Through it all, she conveys her love for the Indonesian people and her passion for her culture, as well as the strength and sense of humour that helped her survive in this turbulent period of Indonesia's history.
