really liked it

The only reason that I'm not giving this five stars is because I wasn't totally in love with it. But I really did like it a whole lot. It's incredibly fascinating how it ties salt into so much history. For example, did you know that salt miners in ancient China were the first to discover and use natural gas? Or that many of the roads commonly used today were created by animals searching for salt? It was so interesting to learn how salt has affected so much of the world's power and how our bodies need salt to survive. This book would be perfect for the type of kid (this is the children's book version) who loves to impress everyone with fun facts.
