Tenison led the largest ever Royal Geographical Society expedition expedition into the heart of Borneo where, for 15 months, 130 scientists made the first proper study of a rainforest.
The expedition triggered the global rainforest movement and highlighted, for the first time, how rich, diverse and ecologically important rainforests are. But since then, Borneo has gone from being a garden of Eden to a dry monocultural desert, where the traditional way of life of the indigenous people of the rainforests is being slowly eroded.Here, Hanbury-Tenison describes the months he spent in Borneo, using his original diaries and photographs. This is the story of complete immersion in a tribal way of life that is on the cusp of extinction. At its heart is the relationship between Hanbury-Tenison and Nyapun - a member of the Penan tribe who would become a lifelong friend and inspiration.
