A highly entertaining account by an animal dealer and collector, who started his trade by running away from home to join the circus. The book describes his years in Malaya and Singapore, where he spent a good amount of time trapping wild animals in Malay jungles, and providing Western medicine to locals. At this time Singapore was a centre for the animal trade, and Mayer would trap the animals in Sumatra or parts of Malaya and bring many to Singapore. In the book, he describes how he trapped pythons, tamed elephants, and shipped various animals across the seas, as well as the people he met along the way.
