This work plots the crazy saga of natural rubber production on American soil since the end of the 19th century to date. Between quarrels of enthusiasts, agronomic experimentation, lobbying by oil industrialists and political about-turns, the guayule and a few other latex plants have shown the potential for founding a new industry entirely separate from the rubber tree that currently provides the world with natural rubber almost exclusively.
