WITH PYTHONS & HEAD-HUNTERS IN BORNEO, THE QUEST FOR MOUNT TIBAN: (Award Winner in the Travel-Cultural Category of the National Best Books 2008 Awards sponsored by USA Book News) - A thrilling narrative of the 2003 & 2006 journeys deep into the heart of Borneo, made by the author and his remarkable indigenous guides. This is a class travel-narrative - long river voyages and foot trekking expeditions with the ultimate goal of scaling the mysterious & allegedly haunted Mount Tiban located near the jungly border between Malaysia and Indonesia. Following in the footsteps of comedy-adventure writer Redmond O'Hanlon's 1983 expedition, the author braves dangerous rivers, deadly diseases, pestiferous insects, leeches, wild animals, venomous snakes & pythons in an attempt to become the first Westerner to scale Tiban since naturalist-explorer Eric Mjoberg in 1925.
