So I thought I would 'Kindle' this. Looks uninspiring, doesn't it? Its actually quite a good read, I'm 1/4 way through. History, politics through the ages, the state of current fish stocks; the text is engaging me. Cod=cash=international trade, in times past.
Kurlansky has written other books on related subjects (salt, the Basques) that I may read too, as I like his style of writing.
There is a wonderful quilt by Ruth B McDowell, featuring a school of cod, that I love. I wish I had the time to acquire and practice her techniques.
