Travels of Little Rice Grass
Long, long ago, there was a little grass plant. Born in the marshes along a river, the wild grass began to travel with early humans. It crossed rivers and mountains and visited many lands. It grew wherever humans lived and had many adventures. It is loved by all – it is RICE!
This is a story of how the wild rice grass became a cultivated plant, feeding millions in today's hungry world.

About the author:
ANUPA ROY is an Asian in love with her rice and tea. When she is not reading or being a mother and wife, she writes on — what else — rice and tea! And about people like the San Bushmen and Eskimos whom she envies. The rest of the time she spends travelling and pottering around libraries, getting information for other serious stuff she writes, like architecture and history.
