The Reign of Law; a tale of the Kentucky hemp fields

Publisher Description

This romantic tale of life on the Kentucky hemp fields, avoids most of the drug associations later attached to marijuana. even as it discusses the intellectual climate in Kentucky around the turn of the century. An historical novel which presents the economic importance of hemp as an early raw material for clothing, maritime ropes, and other cordage products. Farmers had scarce conquered foothold, stronghold, freehold in the Western wilderness before they became sowers of hemp, with remembrance of Virginia and Britain. There is much about the growing and harvesting of hemp in this book, and a young man who works in the hemp fields to earn the money to pay for his education in a bible college. The Reign of Law, which unfolds against the backdrop of the region's long-vital hemp farming industry.
