No jacket. Spine faded, lightly rubbed. 1929 Hard Cover. 328 pp. When three young people who have grown up rampantly in Borneo, where they fended for themselves, hunting and fishing at will, come to live in the comfortable and sophisticated whirl of English society, they discover that adjustment is rather appalling. In the human herd, not so different from jungle folk it seems, they learn that inconformity is allowed only to leaders and outcasts. How each of these three worked out his destiny in a conventional little English seaside town, makes a fascinating story with an undercurrent of lighthearted and sometimes robust Olympian humor.
