Camping & Tramping in Malaya was first published in 1898, and is a lively and entertaining account of the author'a travels in the Malay Peninsula, with fascinating insights into the colonial personalities and working conditions of the day. An urge to find his own nirvana in the hills for planting Arabica coffee evidently drove Rathborne's initial years in Malaya, and his chief legacy is his role in surveying for the alignments of the first long-distance roads in Malaysia. As Malaysia develops and matures as a nation state, interest will surely grow i its excellent formative years. Rathborne's Camping and Tramping is an excellent place to start, and as easy to read as a good novel.
