From Google Books:
1927. Wells recounts the six years he spent in the Malay Jungle. He writes that he can think of no more fascinating place for the tourist than the Malay Peninsula, for a short visit, and travelers around the world should never fail to go by train from Singapore to Penang, instead of remaining on the steamer.
awesome book on life in Malaysia in the early 1900’s

It is great they re-printed this book. My copy is actually an antique. The author was sent to Malaysia to do some survey work, but then WWI developed and he ended up stuck over there for about 6 years. This guy is a real laugh riot! I LOVE his writing style. He has very dry humor (my favorite!) and I laughed through much of the book. His survey work took him into jungles and some very isolated/remote areas, so he had a number of unusual experiences with natives, wildlife, insects, etc! His descriptions will keep you amused.
