Bangkok: Its Life and Sport $22.00

Bangkok: Its Life and Sport by C. H. Forty

With Some Account of Siam's Coastal and Island Game Areas

Bangkok: Its Life and Sport can be regarded as a good guide of the late 1920s for newcomers in Thailand when Bangkok had a population of 450 000 inhabitants. The first three chapters deal with all aspects of life in Bangkok and the rural area in central Thailand as perceived by the author, a Lieut.-Col. of the British army and as considered worth while knowing. He served as governor for two years at Koh Pai which was also used for penal purposes. In the remaining chapters the author deals with all aspects of hunting, mainly snipe. Several chapters are devoted to guns, loading and handling them, to kit and ammunition etc. In a humorous tongue in cheek way he deals with mishaps, avoidable and unavoidable, children, buffalos, bulls, snakes, snakebites, antidotes, cobras, criminals, gun robbery and strangers. He describes how he was robbed of his rifle, thrown into a ditch and left for dead. He tells us of the mishap shooting a young boy by accident with some pellets A boy and a girl were hidden in some bushes while fishing which he did not see when aiming at snipes. He describes the reaction of the father: 'Well sir' said the father, a burly farmer, 'I should not have minded so much if you had only shot the girl, but that other one is a boy and I want him to help me on the farm later on' . The last chapter deals with Ihe islands Koh Sichang, Koh Kram, Koh Pai in all their aspects, including hunting of monitor lizards The description of events and people is enjoyable to read even if one is not a hunter.
