A. J. Langguth, the author of the acclaimed Patriots and Union 1812, offers a gripping history of the gathering storm in the decades preceding the Civil War.

About the Author

A. J. Langguth, professor emeritus of journalism in the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, is the author of almost a dozen books, including Union 1812; Patriots: The Men Who Started the American Revolution; and Our Vietnam: The War, 1954-1975. He lives in Los Angeles. Mel Foster is a former ad agency executive who used to record test tracks for commercials. An audiobook narrator since 2002, he won an Audie Award for Finding God in Unexpected Places by Philip Yancey and an AudioFile Earphones Award for the novel Match Made in Heaven by Bob Mitchell. Mel is the author of several novels, including Shaking Hands with Lefkowitz, and he hopes that one day listeners will get the opportunity to hear him reading something that he's written himself.

Praise For Driven West

"This work is sure to be controversial among western expansion and Civil War scholars and as such is highly recommended for individuals with interests in Cherokee and Civil War history." ---Library Journal Starred Review
