California rice farmers produce nearly 2 million tons of rice a year valued at more than $350 million. How this valuable crop got its start in the Golden State is the story of Richvale. With the help of English instructor Teresa Ward, the Richvale Writing Group covers the history of the area in a meticulously researched and written book called Richvale: A Legacy of Courage, Dedication, and Perseverance. The 300-page volume includes hundreds of rare photographs and many family stories. In hardback for $65. For ordering information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
