Publication on rice production in Texas and Louisiana, touting the humid climate of the area as perfect for the crop's cultivation. With facts and figures on the production, consumption, and marketing of rice, the work is extensively illustrated throughout with agricultural images of the American Rice Cereal Company's operations in eastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. The company was founded in 1904, and this publication seems to have been intended to highlight the advantages of the industry in America and the company's role in it. We find no copies in OCLC. An interesting piece of cereal propaganda, particularly notable for its numerous illustrations.
