Wanderings Among South Sea Savages And In Borneo And The Philippines

By H. Wilfrid Walker

Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society

To

My brother Charles This record of my wanderings in which he took so deep an interest, is affectionately dedicated.

Preface

In a book of this kind it is often the custom to begin by making apologies. In my case I feel it to be a sheer necessity. In the first place what is here printed is for the greater part copied word for word from private letters that I wrote in very simple language in Dayak or Negrito huts, or in the lonely depths of tropical forests, in the far-off islands of the Southern Seas. I purposely made my letters home as concise as possible, so that they could be easily read, and in consequence have left out much that might have been interesting. It is almost unnecessary to mention that when I wrote these letters I had no thought whatever of writing a book. If I had thought of doing so, I might have mentioned more about the customs, ornaments and weapons of the natives and have written about several other subjects in greater detail. As it is, a cursory glance will show that this book has not the slightest pretence of being "scientific." Far from its being so, I have simply related a few of the more interesting incidents, such as would give a GENERAL IMPRESSION of my life among savages, during my wanderings in many parts of the world, extending over nearly a score of years.
