Publisher's Summary

Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, whose thirst for power cannot be quenched, has gained control of New Orleans, a move that gives him potential mastery of the Mississippi River Valley. A country as strong as France could stop America's free-trade market from growing along the great waterway. As France forces the young nation's hand economically and politically, the greatest minds and visionaries of a young America struggle to hold it all together.

History relived

This book was a little long, but was helpful in reminding the listener of this important chapter in American history. The rating might have been higher, but the reader was just not my favorite.
