"It is not...solely as a monograph on the particular tribes specially dealt with that the present work claims to be regarded, but also as a necessary preliminary to a general scientific survey of the races of Southern Indo-China and the Malay Peninsula. Resident as they have been for untold centuries in the Peninsula, these pagan tribes nevertheless have much affinity with some of the wild races of Indo-China, and thus form a link between these two regions. Moreover, the Malay population of the Peninsula presents characteristics which vary very distinctly in different districts, and in some parts it contains a strong strain of aboriginal blood, so that an investigation into the wild races is an essential preparation towards a scientific study of the Malays themselves.

"The survey...covered 899 miles and involved 78 rivers. In addition to the river survey data, soil samples were collected for laboratory grain size analysis. An objective of the survey was to determine the frequency of rivers in Thailand in order to establish the magnitude of the water-crossing problem for the area. The river frequency for the entire survey was one river every 11.4 miles. The conclusion was, therefore, that the river frequency is high and would constitute a severe problem to cross-country movement."
