About this product
- DescriptionThis is an inspired sequel to the authors previous book The Pioneers . In this new book the author explains how the industry has changed over the past three centuries right up to the present day. During the 18th and 19th centuries the quest for plants and seed of commercial importance was to lead to the transportation of plants from one side of the world to the other. These plants and seeds were in every sense as valuable as gold and essential to the British Empire and its continuing development and prosperity. The final chapter in this fascinating book breaks new ground by examining the state of tea plantations as we enter the 21st century. To the keen tea drinkers it graphically shows present day living conditions for the workers, as well as how tea is grown and manufactured. The book is beautifully illustrated with fine colour palte drawings, engravings and photographs.
- Author BiographyJohn Weatherstone comes from a family who have been planters in the East since the 1880's, he having planted in Ceylon for just even years. In Malaya, when young, he had the good fortune to escape with this life when a tiger, a man-eater, broke into his parent's plantation bungalow and carried of their dog which slept outside his open bedroom door each night. But for the dog this book would not have been written!
