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.

Critic Reviews

"Brimming with personal and political tension, the gripping narrative vividly re-creates a seminal moment in the infancy of the U.S. An intelligent, well-crafted drama featuring a cast of authentically rendered historical characters." (Booklist)

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.
