From spoons to bullets to sterling coins, silver permeates our everyday culture and language. For millennia we've used it to buy what we need, adorn our bodies, or trumpet our social status, and likewise it's been useful to vanquish werewolves, vampires, and even our own smelly socks. This book captures all of these facets of silver and more, telling the fascinating story of one of our most hardworking precious metals.
