Historical fiction at it's finest. David Nevin leaves no stone unturned in bringing the characters of our nations founding to life. "The American story" is a three book series beginning with the death of George Washington and ending with Ole Hickory's crushing blow to the redcoats at New Orleans in 1814. "Eagles Cry" the first of the American Story, is the story of a young nation struggling for it's very existance. Jefferson and Madison through force of will, character, determination and pure old luck hold the nation together. I can't say it enough, Great books.
The first in a series of three; this is the story of our earliest governmental history up through the time of the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition. You meet a more humane and talkative Thomas Jefferson and I found Dolly and James Madison very interesting. I have read all three of the books in this series and enjoyed them all. They put a human face on our historical leaders.
