From a review by Steve A. Morrell - Planting was The profession to be accepted into, for a young man. Doors opened to the Sinhalese, the Burghers, who all made excellent Planters. And more importantly, they delivered. Those of us who joined in the late 50’s and early 60’s. we were ‘Company Planters’. This review would not include the Tea Trade, or other aspects of the book. But suffice it to say, skill of its presentation, and the detailed research of its content will result in its recognition as a major literary contribution that would be a privilege to own. It is a Scholarly work of major proportions, and fittingly, an excellent contribution to 150 years of the Tea industry in this country.
