National Geographic : 1956 May
The National Geographic Magazine I traveled by boat up the muddy flood of one of the tributaries of the Rajang, the tidal banks covered with low-growing palm trees and swamp jungle (map, page 716). Andin's house stood not far from the limit of naviga tion, on a clear stream running down from the hills. I was a little pained to find that by the house there was no jungle, only groves of tall fruit trees and rubber gardens. True jungle is to be found only in the farther hills and in the low-lying swamps, which are too wet for cultivation by the Borneans. When we came into view, Andin's people started to beat gongs. Women and girls in short home-woven skirts came down the path.
