Book Description Sabah, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. (First published in 1924). Facsimile reprint, illustrated, pp (10), 266, paperback, a very good. copy. [A young Englishman with some experience working in a solicitor's office, as a cook in a lumber camp, as a "chore boy" on a Canadian farm and as a paper seller on a train, signs up for a post in the Armed Constabulary of North Borneo. This book is an absorbing account of Charles Bruce's journey to the east where he lived and worked in Sandakan, Jesselton, and Tempasuk, with visits to Manila and Zamboanga in the Philippines in between. His lust for life, travel and good sense of humour chronicles a 20-year journey filled with amusing anecdotes of the various characters, native and European, that filled his life. His personal observations of characters and views on day to day administrative and personal matters gives the impression that to truly enjoy Borneo, you have to see the brighter side of life in the tropics. A sportsman and gentleman, of sorts, Charles Bruce's candor and forthrightness carries the book and makes a sound case for 'live and let live'.]. Seller Inventory # 003446
