Synopsis: Based on archival records as well as oral histories, this book reconstructs the pioneering history of the early Chinese settlers in Sarawak. While much scholarship has focused on urban Chinese settlements, Chew tells the story of the Chinese who moved to the rural areas--those who traded with the Ibans and other tribes, or were recruited to work in the coal mines and oil fields.
