by Sir Hugh Clifford
Originally published in the 1900s, we have republished the complete version of this amazing tale of a person who had the ability to shape-shift himself into a tiger, as told by this British Malayan official during the time when he was posted in Pahang. The particular event occurred at a Malay village called Slim in the state of Pahang.
Sir Hugh Clifford relates the story of the Were-Tiger as reported by a peasant girl named Patimah and he tells it in his usual colourful and descriptive manner, which clearly shows his passion for his characters, subjects and surroundings.
Sir Hugh Clifford’s narration of the Pahang Were-Tiger will leave you wondering if there is more to the possibility of shape-shifting between humans and animals than just an old fairy tale.
