His account of hunting orang utans can be startling to a generation reared on idiotic television shows such as Big Cat, where the ferocious killers of the jungle and savannah are referred to as if they were something out of Beatrix Potter.
It's quite refreshing to read this particular account from a time when wildlife was seen as just that, wildlife. In spite of his atavistic impulses this book is a fascinating glimpse into British Victorian attitudes.
Part of me wants to travel with him back in his time and see the countries as they were. Very sad though,reading in the present day,of Wallace shooting so many orang utans for the skins and skeletons..
