So vast, so beautiful a land; Louisiana and the Purchase by Marshall Sprague( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1991 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"So Vast, So Beautiful a Land" is the remarkable story of how the early explorers discovered the Mississippi region and by what steps, through one hundred and twenty-one years, their rulers came to allow the infant United States to buy one of the richest territories on earth for fifteen million dollars. Marshall Sprague explores an epic saga of heroism, corruption, wilderness survival, visionary idealism, royal intrigue, greed, murder, and political chicanery. Probing the political, economic, and social factors that led to the Purchase, he skillfully traces the direct sources of France's eventual disillusionment with its territory. Sprague's incisive commentary and lively prose make this volume a work of meticulous scholarship and eminent readability

Money Mountain by Marshall Sprague( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cripple Creek was the last of the open gold camps before mining fell to giant corporations. Its life was short and violent, but towns, cities, schools, railroads, institutions and financial dynasties grew upon its yield. Today a million tourists each year pour through the region, enjoying what Teddy Roosevelt called?the ride that bankrupts the English language? through Cripple's upper reaches, and imagining the gaudy, brawling days when the quiet, patched and peeling facades of the town were new. Those are the days that Marshall Sprague, New York Times correspondent, calls back to life in this fascinating book. He says of his book:?When I moved to Colorado Springs, and began hearing about Cripple, I wanted some information. None existed in one place, so I dug up the story. I spent a year at it. I combed the libraries, news files, directories, court records and cemeteries. Most important, I interviewed dozens of Cripple Creek pioneers. I hope this adds freshness to a story which should have been written a long time ago.?
