NATHANIEL'S NUTMEG How One Man's Courage Changed the Course of History

by | Read by Stephen Thorne

History • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

In 1616 Nathaniel Courthope claimed the small island of Run for the English East India Company and spent the next four years defending it against the Dutch who controlled the remaining Spice Islands--the only place in the world that nutmeg grew and also an excellent source of mace, cloves, and peppers. British narrator Stephen Thorne has a pleasant and agreeable voice. He conveys both the excitement of beginning a voyage to the East Indies and the somber realities of disease, torture, and death that accompanied such undertakings. The author gives meaning to the seemingly endless ventures by tying events in the East Indies to events in the New World. After listening to NATHANIEL’S NUTMEG, you will never again take the spices in your kitchen cabinet for granted. P.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
