Orson Welles, Che Guevara, and Winston Churchill may not have agreed on political matters, but they had one thing in common: they all appreciated the savor of a good cigar. Dating back to the Arawak Indians who greeted Columbus on his arrival in the West Indies, the cigar is for many a symbol of all the good things in life. The Little Book of Cigars is an informative and handy guide, covering a wide range of issues related to the cigar, in an easy-to-understand alphabetical format with extensive cross-referencing. From Accessories (all the accoutrements designed to improve smoking pleasure) to Vuelta Abajo (reputedly the source of the finest tobacco in the world), discover with The Little Book of Cigars the history of the cigar, irrevocably associated with that of Cuba, where the cigar has been elevated to an art form. The book includes a bibliography and buyer's guide for those wishing to discover more. Thoroughly researched, with full-color illustrations on every page and a unique color-coding system for ease of reference, The Little Book of Cigars will delight all those who revel in the aroma of a fine Monte Cristo or Romeo y Julieta.
