The tales selected for this collection takes the reader back to the early days of Singapore when pirates roamed the seas and tigers ate Chinamen for breakfast. It was an era of rickshaws and gharries, of pepper and gambler plantations, of secret societies and opium dens.Through the eyes of more than 60 visitors are seen glimpses of a place, a time and a way of life that is very different from today’s.
