Description

This work is a sequel to " A Sketch of Assam" and describes the habits, customs and manners of the remaining wild tribes of the hills, viz. Angahmee, Nagahs, Kookies, Meekirs, and Rengma Nagahs, with whom a lengthened residence rendered the author intimately acquainted.

The adventures and travels will also illustrate the life of an officer in the civil employ in Assam. The work concludes with a statistical account of the amount and mode of realizing the revenue, and the physical and moral conditions of the people of the district of Now-Gong.
