A book of personal experience but it reads like fiction and is grand fun to read. An adventurous young American landed in Singapore with a six shooter and scanty cash. He secured a job as superintendent of a rubber plantation and soon discovered why his employers asked no questions about his abilities and experience. Adventure after adventure with savage boasts and savage men and the everlasting fight against disease and the jungle. High spots -- hunting tigers on a motor cycle, being stalked at night through the jungle by two hunting tigers, etc. A grand book for escape reading for the armchair adventurer (men especially).
