Abstract:

Carolina Gold. A ship from Madagascar brought the legendary rice variety to the New World in 1681. Carolina Gold and her sister Carolina White made fortunes on the vast rice plantations of the Old South. But that culture depended on the skilled labor of black slaves, so the Carolina sisters disappeared ... gone with the wind ... after the Civil War. More than a century later, the Carolina sisters were found, alive and well along the wild upper Amazon of Peru. Agricultural scientists bred the genes that helped the Carolina rices survive drought and pests in the rain forest into Turipana 7, an improved variety that doubles yields of dryland rice farmers, among the world's poorest. How did the Carolina sisters reach South America? Confederados--former soldiers from the Carolinas who started a new life along the Amazon after the Civil War--almost certainly brought their seeds. Share this true odyssey of seeds that have touched the lives of slaves and plantation owners, soldiers and scientists and, most of all, peasant farmers. Entertainment and education for students of agriculture, history, international development, and the environment.
