Follow a photographer to Thailand as he documents the life of rice--from planting ceremony to eating--in a compelling narrative with vivid color images.

Rice is one of the most abundant and widely grown crops in the world today. In Thailand, rice is grown everywhere--and it is almost always a part of every meal. Photographer Richard Sobol invites us on a journey to Thailand to explore the life of rice: from the beginning of the growing season at the Royal Plowing Ceremony, to the hard work of transplanting and harvesting the rice plants, and finally ending with a delicious dinner--of rice, of course! Illustrated with beautiful photographs of the farmers and rice fields of Thailand, this is a firsthand account of one of the world's most valuable and important crops.
