The Sea-Dyaks of Borneo


  Edwin H.Gomes

This account of the manners and customs of the Sea-Dyaks at the end of the 19th century is unusual because the author, a clergyman, devotes most of the book to a detailed study of the people without the moralising that one usually expects from works of this type. There is a separate chapter devoted to missionary work. 80 pages. There are chapters also on

  • Childbirth,
  • Daily Life,
  • Burial Rites,
  • Omens,
  • Spirits,
  • Feasts and
  • Religion.
