Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
Incomparable adventure teeming with thrills, chills, mystery, and the bizarre.
Midwest Book Review
The striking color photos of the land and people of the many Indonesian islands are complimented by a first-person travelogue which invites readers to explore the variety Indonesia has to offer. The book is every bit as striking as the TV and video versions, and readers partial to the written word will have a lasting impression of the varied journeys of these adventurous brothers.
