The Company of Animals
This is the story of Jim Hislop, the last European Chief Game Warden of Malaya. He knew the jungle both as a conservator of nature and wildlife and as a killer of men and women. His jungle skills were used by the British Government firstly in undermining the Japanese during World War II and then challenging the Communists in the Malayan 'Emergency' where the jungle provided the insurgents with many a safe haven. The book also recalls the thrills and dangers of the Malayan jungle in the mid 20th century. 225 pages with a few maps and balck and white plates.

Condition: Good. Hardback in a similar dust jacket. This is an ex-library book, but the only signs of it being so are a couple of small stamps on the inside front cover and a front end paper and a library number in both places. The dust jacket is a bit frayed in places and has a tear at the front. It has also tanned with age. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is very mild tanning throughout.
