I read this book for my historical reading. It was interesting because it was about people living in a jungle. Sometimes it was a little boring but at the end it got really exiting at the end. The main characters, Bayang and Harry, follow the path of a Hero's Journey. I would recommend this book to someone who what's to learn about how people live in the jungles and their beliefs.
