    MB. BEEBE who is Director of Tropical Research of the New York Zoological Society, travelled to Ceylon, India, Burma, the Malay States, and Borneo to search for rare pheasants and to study their habits. The results of his explorations have been published in technical papers. The present book deals with a few of his adventures, and is not a connected account of his travels. The reader receives an impression of a cheerful and intrepid explorer, who was undaunted by any dangers, difficulties, or hardships. His success was probably chiefly due to his sympathy with the wild tribes who live in the remote jungles that harbour the rarer pheasants. Without their help he could scarcely have reached his goal.

    Pheasant Jungles.
