Story of the Reynolds family. The authors have written a wonderfully engrossing tale of wealth, privilege, tragedy, & heartache.
It's the tale of 2 brothers, one gave the world one of the largest tobacco companies we have ever had, the other gave us Reynolds Wrap. I found it very interesting how it was founded but lost interest with the spoiled offsprings. ( )

This is an account of three generations of the Reynolds tobacco family. R.J.Reynolds was the business genius who founded the company, but his two sons were profligate playboys and his grandsons were all disinherited by their father. The author of the book is one of them.
