Six Years in the Malay Jungle


Carveth Wells

A no nonsense account of a young man's experiences as a surveyor for roads and railways in Kedah and Kelantan between 1913 and 1918. Wells was an entertaining and observant writer mixing stories of recipes for gin slings with lots of information on the flora and fauna, much of which he presumably had to clear out of his way to get his job done.  Good Hardback in a Very Good Dust Jacket Reprint. Originally published in 1923  288 pages with a bibliography and some black and white plates .
