On April 20, 1803, American diplomats Robert Livingston and James Monroe, under orders from President Thomas Jefferson, made what would be called the "greatest real estate deal in history." For the price of only $15 million, the Americans bought the entire territory of Louisiana-a total of 828,000 square miles-from France. Ann Graham Gaines tells the story of the land sale that not only doubled the size of the United States, but created new opportunities for exploration, settlement, and trade. Highlighting the people involved-from United States presidents to "mountain men"-Gaines examines the land deal that paved the way for American expansion to the West.
