A thrilling travel tale from the unexplored jungles and highlands of Borneo. Lumholtz braves wild animals, tropical diseases and warlike tribes including the Dayaks, to discover their secret traditions and religious beliefs. Adventures with poison blow-pipes, snakes, robbers and headhunters! Compiled in PDF format for easy portable reading, with a hyperlinked index and links to recommended further reading. "Head-hunting raids may include assaults on kampongs, but very often they are cowardly attacks on small groups of unsuspecting people, men, women, and children. The heads thus secured appear to be as highly valued as those acquired under more heroic conditions. The fact is also noteworthy that the heads of Malays are appreciated, but, with few exceptions, not those of white people. Several times I heard of Malay rattan or rubber gatherers who had been disposed of in that way. The head is severed by one stroke."
