The Forest, Source of Life: The Kelabit of Sarawak
The Kelabit Highlands of Sarawak were and still are one of the more inaccessible areas of the state. These forest dwellers first became internationally known with the publication of Tom Harrisson's World Within. Half a century later the author spent time among these same people to understand their way of life an in particular to document the significance of utensils, tools and other items that featured in their daily lives. This book is the outcome of that work. Very Good Hardback. First Edition. 154 pages with black and white plates, catalogues of Kelabit items in the British and Sarawak Museums, maps, figures and a bibliography.
