The Cod's Tale
Bargain Book Copy
What was it that allowed the Vikings to cross the cold Atlantic Ocean to America? And Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, and the Pilgrims after that? What fish became a staple of the medieval diet in Europe, helped spur the American Revolution, and helped the early New Englanders start making money of their own? It was cod, a fish that used to be so plentiful, explorers reported being able simply to dip a basket into the ocean to collect them. But now, only a few cod remain in the oceans, a reminder of the once-abundant fish that changed the world and of the devastating effect man has had on our earth.
