Longhouse in Sarawak
The inspiring story of John Wilson, a Scotsman who took up a government teaching post in Sarawak in 1949. He gave it up three years later, fed up with methods that imposed an alien way of life on the Iban. Instead he took himself into the jungle, to Budu a remote settlement, where he experimented with an education that prepared the tribal community for a different world, but used their culture as a framework. This readable book recounts his story and how a community was transformed on its own terms. Very Good Paperback 239 pages
