Written in 1959.
"The car suddenly jounced, slewed wildly, straightened with a screaming of tires. The gravel road had narrowed even more, and up ahead a two-wheeled cart pulled by a water buffalo almost blocked the way. Durell could see the end of the road just beyond, vanishing into a rutted path through the huge, vine-twisted forest trees. There was no way to get around the old collie and his water buffalo and cart. Helene Phan touched the brakes again and the Cadillac slewed, spun, and slid off the gravel road shoulder."
