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.

Pretty good in that it brings to life historical figures and the times in which they lived that aren't well known. A bit long winded at times but nevertheless worth listening to. I had no problem with the reader.
