Long Description: 
Kate Humble travels around the Spice Islands in Eastern Indonesia in search of nutmeg and cloves, two aromatic substances that caused bloody wars and shaped empires. European explorers visited the volcanic islands in search of great wealth, but their voyages led to massacres of local people and the decimation of their culture. Kate meets those who have rebuilt their communities around the cultivation and trade of the spices.
