From the Publisher:
This definitive audiobook about salt will take you through the history and importance of salt as not only our only edible rock, but as a currency, a necessary mineral, a preservative, a curative, and a huge part of our vocabulary. Salt has had an important part in our history and this audiobook is an amusing and informative narrative. Mark Kurlansky traveled the world to study salt and its critical importance to civilization. This fun read is enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable at the same time.
About the Author:
Mark Kurlansky is well-known to readers through his popular books Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World, and, more recently, The Basque History of the World (both published by Walker & Company.). Salt is an appropriate bookend to these books: the story of a humble but ubiquitous substance inextricably interwoven with the history of mankind.
