More About This Title Rice Without Rain (2007)


Out of a silent harvest, a scorched Maekung valley, comes the stirring story of Jinda, a courageous young Thai girl. Her village, like others in rural Thailand, suffers from the exorbitant land rent, leaving the farmers poverty-stricken and landless. Then, students from Bangkok come to live in their midst, sowing seeds of change, leading up eventually to a student rally in Bangkok that explodes into a horrifying massacre. The refreshing simplicity of Rice Without Rain, and its compassionate and deeply sensitive study of human endeavour, add to the potency of this unforgettable novel.
