Riassunto: DIRTY RICE, a novel set in the early 18th Century in the Low-Country of the early South Carolina Colony, tells of love, passion, adventure and cruelty with totally believable characters. It is the first prequel to the four books of the Mockingbird Hill Series. The early 18th Century saw vast expansion into the New World from England, the European Continent and from Africa, and the establishment of rice plantations in the coastal regions of South Carolina and Georgia. Set against this background DIRTY RICE sweeps us away to a bygone era of adventure, romance and brutal reality. This is the story of African rice and African people, their knowledge, expertise and their forced labor that made the Carolina Colony the wealthiest colony in colonial America. It takes us from the plush parlors of aristocratic English absentee land owners, who set policy in the Colony to maximize profit, to the swampy shores of Carolina amid the mud and muck of rice fields, where people kidnapped from West Africa because of their knowledge and expertise in the growing of rice, were forced to work to fill the coffers of the landowners with wealth. It is a story of exploitation by some and compassion from others. In this, as in her four previous novels, Morris' emphasis is on the people who lived and were forced to cope with what life sent their way. This saga will continue into the next novel, TALLY'S NOOK

Dall'autore: Why did I choose to write this particular story? Certainly it was not to stir up old animosities between whites and blacks and those in between. I wrote it because it is, indeed, my heritage, but so far back that I knew nothing about the subject. When most people think of slavery in the South, we think of King Cotton. Seldom or never do we think of rice. But Glaberrima Rice, African rice, was the product that made South Carolina the richest Colony and Charles Town the wealthiest city, and slaves from the West Coast of Africa were the people with the expertise to do it. Rice from Asia came much later.
I also wrote this book because of the great gap in knowledge that was not passed down for the descendants of those early planters and slaves. We knew that the slaves labored, but not that they had given us so much of their knowledge. Reading Judith Carney's book brought up quite a bit of indignation and even anger at this lack and omission on the part of my teachers and historians who wrote the text books that I studied.
