Waiting for the tide, or scraps and scrawls from Sarawak

This is a collection of six stories written by colonial officers stationed in Sarawak. While camping by the river, waiting for the tide to rise, the officers tell their stories, all set in Sarawak. Fraser tells the story of his encounter with pirates; Perry tells the story of Pya, a jungle heroine; Skipwith tells the story of his pursuit of the Loutods or men with tails; Vane tells the story of rescuing a Dyak girl from a monster; Roscoe tells the story of his encounter with an alligator; and Don tells the story of his encounter with wolves.
