Written by Virginia Christian Beach, Rice & Ducks: The Surprising Convergence that Saved the Carolina Lowcountry
records the history of the South Carolina rice lands, a landscape that stretches all the way from the Pee Dee River to the Savannah.
Rice & Ducks
is a beautiful full-color, coffee table book generously illustrated with archival and modern photography, as well as maps, drawings and paintings from both public and private collections. Available now from Evening Post Books!
Based on a wealth of personal interviews, letters, family papers, plantation and game journals, and other primary source materials, it also draws from experts and scholars in the fields of rice cultivation and plantation history, African-American studies, wetland and waterfowl biology, and wildlife and habitat conservation. Rice & Ducks is a story full of interesting and memorable characters, and unlikely allies. They include English Lords Proprietors, southern plantation owners and slave descendants, northern industrialists, powerful U.S. Senators, daring scientists, media magnates, Trappist monks, and Wall Street financiers.
All proceeds from the sale of Rice & Ducks
will go toward protection of the northern breeding grounds and protection of migratory bird habitat in the Carolina Lowcountry — a fitting tribute to the legacy of the landowners and conservationists who are the subject of the book.
