Annotation Written by the Director of the Connecticut Valley Tobacco Museum, this book delves into the surprising history and historic landmarks of one of the most iconic crops in the Connecticut River Valley. It is also a story of the farmers and field-hands who made tobacco the soul of the valley. Tobacco dates all the way back to early Native Americans and the boom of the civil war. The decline of the cigar nearly destroyed the region's tobacco industry but the reopening of Cuba added a new chapter for cigar tobacco.
Narrator Troyansky, Howard.
