Below you find the first chapter of the unpublished English manuscript of Campfires Along the Equator titled “God’s own devils”. The translation was produced during the second World War, after the success of the first editions of the Dutch version of the book.

The chapter narrates the climb of Mount Kunon, mentioned in the goodbye letter to Paul Julien, read as part of the launch of this website on May 27th 2021.
