Into the Heart of Borneo
This is a firsthand account of O'Hanlon's 1983 expedition with his friend and poet James Fenton to search out the near extinct Borneo rhinoceros. Accompanied (and frequently rescued) by 3 native guides the two Englishmen encounter intense humidity, impenetrable jungle and dangerous rapids and enjoy riotous celebrations with the local tribes along the way. O'Hanlon recounts the whole nutty adventure with wit and self-deprecation, sometimes reminiscent of 'The Ascent of Rum Doodle'!
"I really enjoyed reading this book as I travelled around Borneo. It made me laugh out loud and despite the fact that my adventures were far tamer than those of O'Hanlon and Fenton I could recognise and relate to the beautiful descriptions of the environment, wildlife and culture."
