STRONG WINE

STRONG WINE

Bold, flamboyant, extravagant, devious, visionary, Agoston Haraszthy (1812-1869) is one of the most fascinating - and elusive - figures in the history of American agriculture. In this book, the first full-length biography of one of nineteenth-century America's most interesting and influential immigrants, the author examines Haraszthy's amazing life, dispels many of the myths that have gathered around him, and makes a careful assessment of his contributions to American immigration and agricultural history - in particular the history of the Californian wine industry
