The true story of Irish families at the turn of the twentieth century, striving to make a go of a new crop in order to improve the lives of ordinary people and control the massive problem of unemployment and its consequence - emigration. The story of over 30 years of tobacco growing in Ireland is told here through the private papers of one who was at the heart of the Randlestown experiment.
