Abstract:
The individual tale which recounts the origin of tobacco is linked with one of two groups of origin narratives: either myths handed down by tribal sages who preserved lore among American Indians, or myths and legends found in the lore and literature of European and Asiatic peoples who became acquainted with tobacco subsequent to discoveries of the 16th-century. This article surveys origin narratives which sprang up among people introduced to tobacco after the discovery of America.
