French 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 Americas free-trade market from growing along the great waterway. American businesses have begun to thrive on the Mississippi, including that of the widow of Danny Mobry, a shipping tycoon and one of the most sought-after women in New Orleans and Washington.

As France forces the young nations hand economically and politically, there is a movement in the Northeast to turn toward England. Such a move could bring those states back under the colonial yoke they just shook off. Suddenly the United States is a global nation as the greatest minds and visionaries of a young America struggle to hold it all together.

David Nevin spent his childhood on army bases scattered across the United States. On his seventeenth birthday he joined the U.S. Navy at the latter stages of World War II. Later, as a merchant marine, he spent seven years in the Pacific before he returned to the United States and became a journalist, first in Texas, then in Washington as a Life magazine correspondent. He was awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Journalism Award. In addition to writing books on popular history for Time-Life, Nevin continues to write freelance. He is the New York Times best-selling author of Dream West, which became a seven-part miniseries.

Geoffrey Howard is a retired British journalist who strives to add warmth and clarity to every audiobook. Says Howard, "I try to bring the listener as close as possible to the experience I'm having while reading it for the first time."
