Here is a fascinating and lively account of the crucial role the humble codfish has played in world history. In beautifully written, flowing poetic prose, Mark Kurlansky eloquently tells the thousand year history of the cod. The story begins on the headlands of Newfoundland and travels to four continents. What emerges is an astonishing story of a fish that has prompted revolutions; a fish that the settlement of North America was based on; a fish that has been the basis of national diets and economies; and, a fish that Canada was recently prepared to go to war over. Peppered throughout Kurlansky's entertaining history are recipes and lore from the Middle Ages to the present.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.

Due to many publishers not providing a Canadian list price the Canadian list price shown is an estimation based upon the US list price multiplied by the current exchange rate.
