Tobacco Road is a 1932 novel by Erskine Caldwell about Georgia sharecroppers. It was dramatized for Broadway by Jack Kirkland in 1933, and ran for eight years, an astounding feat for a non-musical, and remains the second-longest running play in Broadway history.


A 1941 film version, deliberately played mainly for laughs, was directed by John Ford, and the storyline was considerably altered.


The novel itself was included in Life Magazine's list of the 100 outstanding books of 1924–1944.
