Summary:
Deep River and Ivoryton, two villages in the lower Connecticut River Valley, were dominated for more than a century by "white gold"--Ivory. The growth of the piano industry led to a new use for this exotic and long-treasured substance, and suddenly, the two villages became tied to Zanzibar, the most important exporting place for the tusks of African elephants.
