Overview

Have you ever wondered where cigars were first produced?

It is widely believed that cigars were first produced in Spain. But before cigars became all the rage in Europe, tobacco was needed to make them. Tobacco is indigenous to the Americas, where native peoples have produced it for hundreds of years.

It is believed that the Maya of Yucatan peninsula in Mexico and parts of Central America cultivated tobacco, and even smoked it! Tobacco use spread to other tribes, both north and south.

It is believed that its first use in the United States was probably among the tribe along the Mississippi. It wasn't until Christopher Columbus sailed his famous voyage to the Americas that the rest of the world came to know tobacco.

    Not worth even one dollar

    The poor writing quality alone would qualify this eBook for a single star, but the real offense was the amazing lack of depth. Most of the author's effort is devoted to a section on health risks, and the relevant sections are less informative than Wikipedia. Save your money. If I wanted to be lectured to about smoking's health risks, I'd call my mother and she'd do it for free.
