Discription Rum : A Global History by Richard Foss:

 Overview Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum A favorite of pirates, the molasses-colored liquid brings to mind clear blue seas, weather-beaten sailors, and port cities filled with bar wenches. But enjoyment of rum spread far beyond the scallywags of the Caribbean Charles Dickens savored it in punch, Thomas Jefferson mixed it into omelets, Queen Victoria sipped it in navy grog, and the Kamehameha Kings of Hawaii drank it straight up.

In Rum, Richard Foss tells the colorful, secret history of a spirit that not only helped spark the American Revolution but was even used as currency in Australia.This book chronicles the five-hundred-year evolution of rum from a raw spirit concocted for slaves to a beverage savored by connoisseurs. Charting the drink s history, Foss shows how rum left its mark on religious rituals it remains a sacramental offering among voodoo worshippers and became part of popular songs and other cultural landmarks.

He also includes recipes for sweet and savory rum dishes and obscure drinks, as well as illustrations of rum memorabilia from its earliest days to the tiki craze of the 1950s. Fast-paced and well written, Rum will delight any fan of mojitos and mai tais."It must be hallucination," I cried.

"It cannot be. it is not true!" But no. By listening more attentively, I really did convince myself that what I heard was truly the sound of human Rum : A Global History. To make any meaning out of the sound, however, was beyond my power. I was too weak even to hear distinctly. Still it was a Rum : A Global History fact that someone was speaking. Of that I was quite certain. There was a moment of fear. A dread fell upon my soul that it might be my own words brought back to me by a distant echo.

Perhaps without knowing it, I might have been crying aloud. I resolutely closed my lips, and once more placed my ear to the huge granite wall. CHAPTER_25 paragraph 10 Yes, for certain.
