“Finding Myself in Borneo” Wins Travel Book Award

Readers’ Favorite recognizes Finding Myself in Borneo in its annual international book award contest—an Honorable Mention Award in the Non-Fiction—Travel category.

“Neill McKee weaves strong themes into the narrative, including friendship, education, personal growth, adventure, love, and family. At times wry and at times filled with humor, Finding Myself in Borneo: Sojourns in Sabah is a memoir that is told in an honest voice and will inspire readers to think about how they relate to the world they inhabit. It’s simply brilliant.”

—Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite

More reviews:

“Honest and thought-provoking memoir…. Finding Myself in Borneo is full of stories of love, uneasiness, and pure joy.”—★★★★★ San Francisco Book Review

“Neill McKee’s work takes us on a true adventure. His keen observations of North Borneo re-imagine a time and place via a unique journey. McKee’s writing stirs the imagination and simultaneously explains a place less traveled. His eye and ear for startling detail and understanding of political dimensions make this work a fascinating and eye-opening read.”—Diane Thiel, author and professor, University of New Mexico
