The 266-page book covers several towns - from Weston to Jesselton, following the historical railroad started by British North Borneo Chartered Company - as well as other well-known towns such as Menggatal, Tuaran, Tamparuli, and Tenghilan.
Old photos from various sources have been compiled into one book that tells the story of how the early townships on the West Coast of Sabah originated.
