This relatively small area was made up of hills and almost impenetrable jungle and contained a remarkable number of warring tribes. Most of the tribes were very primitive, but some had uniforms and firearms, and even entered the Indian service.

Although at a primitive level of development, local warriors used incredible ingenuity to fashion weapons and make clothing and armor from leather, wood and wicker.Ian Heath has assembled 125 drawings, 52 other illustrations and 9 maps to chronicle this colorful but little-known part of the colonial world. Those interested in the numerous small British expeditions to the region or the subject of primitive costume and warfare will find this book and its extensive bibliography extremely useful.

This quality European hardcover has a gold-embossed cloth cover rather than an American style dust jacket.
