An Account of Its People Flora and Fauna
Enriquez was a natural adventurer of the late British colonial period. Born in India and educated in England, he joined the Indian Army, but eventually moved to Burma and then to Malaya before returning to Burma to retire. Wherever he went he wrote evocative accounts of the people and the wildlife he came across. In this account, he takes the reader through the country's history, arguing that the country belongs in the archipelago across the sea and not amongst its land neighbours, while taking in his observations on the flora and fauna and the peoples of the country in the 1920s. .
