MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass. This is a very lovely book with a great number of excellent photographs. It is easy and pleasant reading, and will hopefully help to build support for nature conservation and in particular, the Heart of Borneo project. So, it is a great guide to the flora and fauna, and a great example of sound conservation advocacy. But, this volume is not comparable with the other titles in the "Wild.

The island of Borneo is a place of great natural beauty and rich biodiversity. From the peaks of the majestic Mount Kinabalu to the enchanting coral-fringed islands that lie offshore, with vast tracts of lush rainforest in between, Borneo's landscape is as varied as it is magnificent. In Wild Borneo, author Nick Garbutt embarks upon a fascinating investigation into the wonders of this island, exploring every aspect of Borneo's terrain, from its rainforest-covered lowland areas to its mountain ranges, highland areas, and winding rivers.

  • Nick Garbutt's "Wild Borneo: the Wildlife and Scenery of Sabah, Sarawak, Brunei and Kalimantan" is a wonderful addition to an existing seies for the lay reader and expert alike. This series, started by New Holland Press and continued by MIT, has volumes on "Wild ....." including Indonesia, India, New Zealand, South Africa and Thailand. All were done a half dozen years ago or so. Thus this well-written and beautifully photographed book is most welcome. It is also reasonably priced for its intrinsic value. To underscore its importance, one need look no further than the name of the author of its preface, Sir David Attenborough. It covers Borneo's habitats, wildlife, people, The Heart of Borneo, fabled Mt. Kinabalu and ecotourism and conservation. Garbutt is also the author of the excellent and comprehensive "The Mammals of Madagascar."

  • This book is extremely thorough. Just about any information one could want is contained here. I have only praise for the editors and others who produced this volume.

  • We just returned from 21 days in Borneo. This book had great photos of the pictures that we didn't get.

  • Really nice book

  • I search it from Amazon website. The book provides a lot of information about Borneo.So I buy it from Internet.

  • This is a very nice book. The book is filled with wildlife, everything from sea life to mammals of the third largest island in the world. There are orangutans, proboscis monkeys, venomous snakes, etc. There is also the world's largest flower in the book, Rafflesia. Borneo is the largest island in Asia as well. Other animals in this book are elephants, gibbons, and hornbills. It is a lovely tropical island; this book is a MUST for anyone interested in all kinds of nature.

  • The author has spent some time researching and developing this beautiful book on Borneo. Borneo is truly a treasure that needs to be protected as well as the animals and (native) people living there. The pictures bring to life the amazing variety and aspects of animal life in Borneo and parts of Malaysia. Great book with great information.

  • This book provides an excellent overview of what to expect in going to Borneo. The explantions are not lengthly where one gets tired of reading and the facts are written in a lively narative. Great for one who wants to see what this interesting island offers in all aspects of it's wildlife. Because of the size you probably won't have it in your luggage when you go, but great for researching before the trip and taking notes. Glad I have it!!!
