Description
As the author of Caesar's Legion and Standing Bear Is a Person reveals in this pre–Civil War drama, U.S. meddling in the politics of Latin America is nothing new. In 1855 an epic imperialist duel erupted between Tennessee native William Walker, an adventurer who stepped into a Nicaraguan civil war and eventually became the country's president, and shipping magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, for whom the country was a key link between the Atlantic and the Pacific. When Walker's Democratico government seized Vanderbilt's assets in the country, the tycoon—with the U.S. government's encouragement—supplied Nicaragua's neighboring countries with the arms they needed to overthrow Walker's regime.
