"[Gordon Alexander] spent thirteen years managing tea estates in South India in the fifties and sixties and draws upon a deep well of personal experience and has also done a sterling job of researching the time period in question.
[The Road to Puthukkad] is a terrific, richly rendered exploration of both time and place. Readers are treated to a wealth of fascinating details of life in the Western Ghats during the mid years of the British Raj, and are offered a window into the world of tea production. It is a compelling read." - Warren Layberry, Editor
