Eagle's Cry: A Novel of the Louisiana Purchase

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.

"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.

    "What's Next?"

    I liked the book because I liked the development of the roles of Burr and Jefferson, and also because I have not read much about Madison and his relationship with Dolly. Many of the books charictors are left hanging at the end, however. Lewis on the keelboat (without his dog Seaman), the shipping heiress on a ship without her lover, and poor Andy Jackson regretting his contencious nature.

    Obviously this is the first of a series and I will listen to 1812 to see how everyone survives (except the love stricken and besotted Lewis). What happens to Burr is very well covered by Gore Vidal.
