Click to enlarge<h1>A Wilderness So Immense -
The Louisiana Purchase and
the Destiny of America</h1>

The remarkable story of the Louisiana Purchase -- the land purchase that doubled the size of our young nation, set the stage for its expansion across the continent, and confronted Americans with new challenges of ethnic and religious diversity. Interweaving the stories of ordinary settlers and imperial decision-makers, Kukla depicts a world of revolutionary intrigue that transformed a small and precarious union into a world power -- all without bloodshed and for about 4 cents an acre.
