This is the personal story of six years spent as an assistant manager on tea plantations in the beautiful and historic island of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. The European tea planter is now a figure of history and his way of life has long vanished. This book describes a planter's daily life, the events experienced and the post-colonial social scene with humour as well as candour. Historical and literary aspects are included where these are relevant to the story and the wonderful natural history of the Island is brought to attention by a keen naturalist.
