About Tobacco Wars

• Paperback: 113 pages
Publisher: Quattro Books (October 2010)

“…and another fascinating voice from the ever-growing chorus of Native-Canadian writers. An important addition…” -Tomson Highway

Set in the early 17th century, Tobacco Wars follows the mythical and rollicking adventures of Pocahontas and playwright Ben Jonson, from the inns, alleyways and royal courts of London to pirates, perilous crossings and hostile warriors in the New World. And as worlds are turned upside down and irrevocably altered, a new commodity, tobacco, intoxicates the Old World just as an “Indian princess” undertakes her own age of exploration.
