Illustrated in black and white, small 8vo, pp xvi, 95, paperback, a very good copy. [First published in 1927, Kinabalu: The Haunted Mountain of Borneo still enthralls readers with the exploits of early-day explorers of Kinabalu. This account follows Enrique’s desire to scale the summit with his trusted companion Sau Nan and a small entourage. Enriquez’s account of his expedition contains some of the most beautifully written passages that portray the starkness and beauty of Kinabalu. He notes that "Kinabalu is a sort of Mecca for naturalists", which still holds true today. An enjoyable read that captures the romance and excitement of discovery. An amateur naturalist, knowledgeable about butterflies and birds, author C.M. Enriquez concocted a two-month itinerary to collect butterfly and other specimens on Kinabalu, when his adventures began.
