Southeast of Zamboanga by Vic Hurley
With an introduction by Max Miller. Published in 1935 by E. P. Dutton, First Edition. This work documents the years spent in the interior of Mindanao, the southernmost island in The Philippines. There is much discussion of the native tribes of Mindanao - "a lone white man, isolated in the middle of a brown man's country." His time was spent in Zamboanga (five hundred yards from his back yard was a solid wall of jungle) and later in Manila. With 9 photographs on full page plates, including frontispiece showing a pagan family of Mindanao, plus a Moro "Vinta", pagan girl, my shack, torpid python after swallowing a deer (alive when photo was taken), pagan woman of Basilan Island and others.
