By Bayviews

Using a wonderful combination of clear, accessible text and excellent color photographs, [Reynolds] explains how ancient traditional Balinese agricultural methods have resulted in plentiful harvests for centuries. . . . Jan Reynolds does a wonderful job of taking us into the life of a Balinese rice farmer, showing how the interwoven social, spiritual, and ecological aspects of their culture serve as a remarkable example of sustainable agriculture in an increasingly industrialized world. —Bayviews, The Association of Children’s Librarians of Northern California
