Description

From pre-history until just a century ago - when the mysteries of salt were revealed by modern chemistry and geology - no one knew that salt was virtually everywhere. Accordingly, it was one of the most sought-after commodities in human history. Mark Kurlansky illuminates the big picture by focusing on one seemingly modest detail. In the process, the world is revealed as never before.
