A story will remain a tale if left untold and negated. This was the sole motivation for the authors to compile, at least for them in their times were their bedtime stories from their great grandparents to their grandparents passed for generations. This book as many Sarawak Malay can relate to, most people knew about the history, but their only half of the stories.
This book like any other folklore books, has their own fantasy. What is fantasy without its legend. The Legend of Merpati and Permaisuri. The authors documented the narrated histories and collection materials than brought us back to the earlier years of how it all began. It came to their virtue to collate into a book for our future generations to hold onto their roots.
