Knapen, a cultural anthropologist, deals with the long-term interrelation between humans and their environment in Borneo, going back to the early 17th century. Drawing on previously unused primary sources, he describes how people made a living in the wide range of environments found there. He looks at agriculture, hunting, fishing, animal husbandry, forest exploitation, and the collection of products for the market, discussing the impact of these activities on the natural environment and explaining why most areas were little affected until modern times, yet others showed clear signs of human occupation and exploitation from an early date. Contains a few bandw photographs and maps. Distributed by The Book Bin-Pacifica. c. Book News Inc.

In 1653 Cromwell sent Luke Tremayne and his deputy Harry Lloyd to Paris to negotiate secretly with the exiled King Charles II. After a serious mishap to Luke, Harry is forced to complete the mission alone. Luke is nevertheless gainfully employed by a wealthy French aristocrat the Marquis des Anges to investigate the murder of his first wife and the attempted murder of his second. Harry assists the English courtiers to solve the murder of two young ladies-in-waiting to the Queen Mother Henriette Marie, and together with a Royalist peer is falsely imprisoned and tortured. He escapes and after many life threatening adventures is rescued on the orders of France’s chief minister, Cardinal Mazarin. Meanwhile Luke’s investigations are complicated by a feisty abbess, hysterical nuns, a Canadian adventurer, a rampaging bear and a mysterious treasure of English Catholic gold and silver—investigations that provoke a series of fatal bombings. Harry’s determination to find and exact revenge on a renegade French aristocrat responsible for his torture leads him eventually to the French chateau where Luke is pursuing his villains.
