In the mid-nineteenth century a young Englishman, Gideon Barr, establishes a private raj on the north coast of Borneo. The world he creates, boasting churches, stone quays, and great swathes of lawn, eventually encompasses a territory the size of England. Its expansion campaigns are carried out by tribes of headhunters.

Into this fragile settlement, bordered by pirates, the opium trade, and impenetrable jungle, Barr brings his fresh-faced young bride from England.

This is a classic story of Victorian social mores superimposed on one of the most violent cultures on earth, and of the extraordinary group of missionaries, fugitives, madmen, and romanti drawn to this distant land.

`A wonderful story, exceptionally written.' - Beryl Bainbridge

`A beautifully written, elegant, and rich dream.' - John Fowles

`Carries one deep into the lost world of the Victorian British Diaspora.' - The Times
