Preview

Recalling his childhood adventures and early schooling, the author retells his stories of his childhood on the island of Java through stories of his family and neighbours, both human and otherwise in which he pays special attention to how his freedom was limited by the danger of the local wildlife. Afterwards, the author recounts the story of living with his aunt after his father's job was transferred, spinning wistful tales of familial life in the time of the Japanese invasion of China.
