The Panama Hat TrailBook - 2017
This classic South American travel book tells the true story behind an iconic symbol. Critically acclaimed author Tom Miller reveals the making and marketing of one Panama hat, from the straw fields of Ecuador's coastal lowland to a hat shop in Southern California. Along the way, the hat becomes a literary device allowing Miller to give us his impressions from the tributaries of the Amazon to the mountainsides of the Andes. The Panama Hat Trail is at once a study in global economics and a lively travelogue.
