The story of Hang Tuah, one of Malaysia’s greatest heroes, will delight readers of all ages. Hang Tuah was a country boy who becomes an expert in silat, the Malay art of self-defence. With his dear friend Hang Jebat, he becomes a guard to the Sultan of Malacca. Hang Tuah’s skills are tested by the King of Majapahit. In the end, he captures the kris, or dagger, of Taming Sari, and this paves the way for the marriage between the Sultan and the Princess of Majapahit.
