Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky
Salt: A World History

elise.petersen, September 1, 2008

I was assigned this reading for an AP World History class, and I cannot honestly say that in all parts of the book i was thoroughly entertained. However, it was interesting in that it opened up my mind to how much salt--common salt--has influenced humankind. I never thought about salt as anything more than what I eat on my dinner plate, but this book got me thinking in a much bigger picture.
