Jerejak: Penang's Untold Story
Pulau Jerejak ( Jerejak Island) probably gets barely a mention, if any at all, in Penang guide books. For residents of the Penang area the island has one immediate association - leprosy. In this book Gibby reveals a more varied and interesting history than most know about - besides being an isolation centre for leprosy sufferers in the past, the island has hosted a shipyard, a prison, a staging post for arrivals and departures from the country and a holiday resort. Thanks to meticulous research from the 19th century onwards, the author brings to life this apparent backwater. New Hardback in a New Dust Jacket. First Edition. 258 pages.
