Whilst Williams is much more famous for Elephant Bill I think this is his best book. It tells of an exploratory trip he made to the Andaman Islands in search of workable timber. His work crew were made up of a crowd of Chinese convicts, opium addicts to a man. Williams decided that taking a football with him was a good idea and an aid to keeping the peace. What he didn't tell the authorities was that the football was stuffed with opium.
