Frank Swettenham is famous as one of the chief figures in the formation of British Malaya during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. To the Malays he is known as one who lived with them, spoke their language, respected their faith, participated in their interests, humoured their prejudices, sympathized with and helped them in trouble, and shared their pleasures and their risks. This varied collection of his stories and sketches reflects a deep interest in the people and their pastimes, as well as a keen eye for detail and a desire to sample the many experiences of this fascinatiing country.
