The story of man's search and struggle for this vital element, how trade routes were established, alliances built, empires secured and revolutions provoked - all for something that is everywhere in nature.
Kurlansky continues to prove himself remarkably adept at taking a most unlikely candidate and telling its tale with epic grandeur. ("Los Angeles Times Book Review")
