A welcome biography of one of Malaysia and Singapore's early expatriate pioneers. Born in Singapore in 1841, Fraser became a prominent businessman until he was embroiled in a murky financial scandal which saw him sentenced to two years rigorous imprisonment. On release he headed for Pahang on the mainland and re-invented himself as a reasonably successful tin miner. His last mining venture was on the hill that now bears his name Bukit Fraser (Fraser's Hill), which later became a hill station for convalescents and tourists. New Paperback. First Edition. 88 pages with 24 black and white and colour photographs and maps For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
