About this Audiobook

This History Highlights online audiobook shares the international intrigue and secret deals as three different countries alternate control of the Mississippi River, the vital port of New Orleans, and the vast expanse of land west of the river stretching off to the Rocky Mountains.

Enjoy the story of how the United States came to purchase about 828,000 square miles of land for only $15 million. The area had been claimed by France, gifted to Spain, and transferred back to France by the time the U.S. took their chance to make a deal. Thomas Jefferson took quite a risk. It was a deal that doubled the size of the U.S. with the stroke of a pen and sparked the country's westward growth. This event also is the reason for the incredible U.S. government expedition to explore the west - the journey led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.

Get ready for a journey of discovery.
