really liked it

It's hard to believe, but there was a time when pepper was more valuable than gold. Europe craved the novelty of new spices, and explorers from many different countries set out to make their fortunes in the spice trade. Corn relates the history of the spice islands and those who discovered and exploited them in all of their cruel and exciting glory.
