It is 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. It is a story full of interesting and memorable characters, and unlikely allies. They include English Lords Proprietors, southern plantation owners and slaves, northern industrialists, powerful U.S. Senators, daring scientists, media magnates, Trappist monks, and Wall Street financiers."--Publisher's Web site
