Borneo Tom is the travel memoir of Tom McLaughlin, a retired science teacher who decided to go live on Borneo Island, even though he was diagnosed with a rare and incurable neurological disease. He wanted to explore Asia and live his dream of learning more about the tropical wildlife and the people who he lived with 35 years ago when he was in the Peace Corps.
A portion of the income earned from the sales of Borneo Tom will be used to purchase items for the Matang Wildlife Centre outside of Kuching, Malaysian Borneo to support nature conservation. The Matang Wildlife Centre's primary mission is to return rare and endangered species, particularly orangutan, to the wild.
