Ebook description:

“Cod” spans a thousand years and 4 continents. From the Vikings, who pursued the codfish throughout the Atlantic, and the enigmatic Basques, who first commercialized it in medieval times, to Bartholomew Gosnold, who named Cape Cod in 1602, and Clarence Birdseye, who based an trade on frozen cod in the 1930s, Mark Kurlansky introduces the explorers, retailers, writers, cooks, and of course the fishermen, whose lives have interwoven with this prolific fish. He chronicles the fifteenth-century politics of the Hanseatic League and the cod wars of the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. He ornaments his story with gastronomic element, mixing in recipes and lore from the Middle Ages to the current. And he brings to life the cod itself: its character, habits, prolonged household, and finally the tragedy of how the most worthwhile fish in historical past is at the moment confronted with extinction. From fishing ports in New England and Newfoundland to coastal skiffs, schooners, and manufacturing unit ships throughout the Atlantic; from Iceland and Scandinavia to the coasts of England, Brazil, and West Africa, Mark Kurlansky tells a story that brings world historical past and human passions into fascinating focus. present more
