Cinderella of the New South: A History of the Cottonseed Industry, 1855-1955

Front Cover
Univ. of Tennessee Press, 1995 - Business & Economics - 280 pages
For decades after the Civil War, the cottonseed industry played a critical role in the economy of the American South - an importance that previous historical accounts of the region have barely acknowledged. In Cinderella of the New South, Lynette Boney Wrenn fills a major gap in scholarship by tracing the story of the cottonseed industry from its antebellum origins through its transformation during the first half of the twentieth century.
