But the critics ridicule the book. Since the book was based on stories Robert's father had told him, there isn't anything Robert can do but trek off to Malaya (after freshening up in Singapore) and prove his old daddy had given him the straight scoop. Especially since the London Explorer's Society had removed the elder Roberts' plaque from its hallowed walls. (Back off...nobody claimed it was going to be "Four Feathers.") Some credibility is lost when, warming up before going after the white tiger, Roberts lassos a Saladang which is advertised as being the most feared animal in the world. Evidently, this Saladang doesn't know his reputation and just reacts to getting roped as calmly as your-everyday water buffalo chewing on his cud. But later on Roberts is captured by a fierce tribe of natives, gets clawed by a tiger, rescues Mamo Clark from being sacrificed, and has several encounters with pythons, who appear to not be an endangered species as they are hanging from every tree limb in Malaya. Jayne Regan provides the romantic interest as the---what else when British officers are concerned---Colonel's daughter. And, ere long or about an hour, Roberts returns and makes the scoffing club members put his father's plaque back upon their stuffy Written by Les Adams See less
