A PEACE CORPS MEMOIR OF MALAYSIAN BORNEO
by Kate Griffin Flaherty

Meet the diverse peoples of Sarawak, East Malaysia: the hardworking, generous Chinese; the mellow Muslim farmers and fishermen; the hilarious, hospitable former headhunting Ibans—all of whom shared their lives and laughter with a kid from Dorchester.
