Swiss adventurer Bruno Manser lived with the Penan for years,adopting their way of life and spearheading the movement to save the rainforest the tribe called home. Until he walked into the jungle and disappeared. Michael Palmieri has spent decades collecting and dealing in Bornean tribal art, occasionally in less than above board circumstances. These two men met only once in a brief and unremarkable way. A fascinating tale of two men and the very different ways each of them attempted to save a culture. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
