This paper begins with the author wondering about the sanity of the people who come to work in such an uncivilized county with such intense heat and about his own sanity in the days ahead, similar to the character in Jospeh Conrad's "The Heart of Darkness". Next, the author describes his experiences on the crash of the little steamer and his reawakening on land among the native people. The paper concludes with the author taking stock of his situation, alone near a small hut in a vast jungle pressing close, ominous and unforgiving.
From the Paper:"The next time I awoke it was daylight and even though my muscles protested movement of any sort I forced myself to sit up. There were still the smells of a fire and food cooking, and I was inside a large grass hut, but there were no people in the structure with me. I tried to look around without causing more pain to my battered body. Light filtered into the structure through the openings in the grass and wood construction. I saw more mats rolled up and set against a wall, a ring of rocks in the center of the hut where the fire was contained, and woven grass baskets hanging from the wall."
