KIRKUS REVIEW

I was fascinated by this simply but beautifully told story of how the search for the lands of spice changed the face of the world, and how the trade in spice affected places and people from Portugal to India, from Magellan to the natives who suffered under the brutal rule of both Dutch and Portuguese. Absorbing reading, useful background material for history.
