In The Mississippi Territory and the Southwest Frontier, 1795 - 1817, Robert V. Haynes does more than recount history; he explores the political and diplomatic situations that led to the formation and expansion of the Mississippi Territory. Extensively researched and exceptionally written, Haynes details critical events in Mississippi's rich history, such as ongoing border violence, the arrest of infamous traitor Aaron Burr, and the bloody Creek War.
The book is published by University Press of Kentucky.

A must for History buffs
Unlike some historical works this book was written with a somewhat narrative style. For those that are history buffs this is must listen to because of the incredible detail and effort the author put into researching and sharing a very tumultuous episode in American history. It is often easy to just think that after the revolutionary war things were calm in North America. However, on the frontier there were many growing pains as countries and strong personalities fought to determine what kind of Country America would become in the wilds of the west. The narrator enunciates even the $5 dollar college words with ease and care. W.B. Ward also uses voice inflection to create even more of a feeling that you're listening to a story being told by the fire from someone who was there to see it all. Even a causal fan of history would thoroughly enjoy this book!!

I wish I could purchase the printed copy of this text so I could see maps and tables. Thank you for an interesting narrative of America's early history.
