Rice and rice growing inevitably suggest water. Particularly when the rice is young, rice fields have a strange charm that stems from the multiplicity of colours among the young plants, depending on the transparency and movements of the water in which they grow, the sky and the light. Once it has dominated the rice field, a deep, vibrant green, full of promise for the future, becomes the prevailing colour in the landscape. When the rice is ripe, it looks gold or amber, sandy or bronze as it sways in the wind. This richly illustrated book is a tribute to this globally crucial plant. It recounts its history, daily life and the issues for the future.
