Sumatra is a natural wonderland of luxuriant forests, fast-flowing rivers, vast swamps, cool highland lakes and imposing volcanoes. It encompasses a panoply of trees, flowers, mammals, birds, reptiles and insects to satisfy the most demanding naturalist - among them the world's largest flower, the 'Rafflesia', the orang-utan, Asian elephant, Sumatran rhinoceros and tiger, the sunbear, three species of gibbon, ten species of hornbill and the (occasionally) man-eating estuarine crocodile. But the island's fascination lies in its interplay of nature and culture. Strikingly beautiful, Sumatra is also home to an array of cultures that have maintained their identity even in the face of Jakarta's modernizing tendencies

About the author (2000)

Joshua Eliot first set foot in Singapore as a child, but became seriously interested in things Asian when he studied at the School of Oriental & African Studies in London. Since then events have taken him back to the region two or three times a year, sometimes for long periods. He has worked at the University of Singapore, written children's books and given radio broadcasts and lectured on cruise liners.

Jane Bickersteth first visited Singapore in the early 1980s. She has since returned on numerous occasions to research and write about the country and has in the process, walked most of Singapore's streets. As an artist Jane has a particular interest in the material cultures of the country, and the fusion of East and West.
