The White Rajahs of Sarawak: A Borneo Dynasty
The dynasty of The White Rajahs of Sarawak began in 1841, following the 'gift' of Sarawak from the Sultan of Brunei to the Englishman James Brooke. James, the charismatic founder; Charles, the astute administrator; and Vyner, the irresponsible hedonist, are the principal players in this incredible family saga. This richly illustrated book of colour photographs relives the heady mix of exoticism, violence, courage and romance of this extraordinary adventure.
