Overview

This comic book celebrates the two hundredth anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase, commemorating America's best buy. It is the result of a blending of accurate research work in the field of American history with unexcelled craftsmanship in the field of cartoon art, as created by the nationally famous cartoonist John Chase.
Originally syndicated in strip form in many daily newspapers throughout the United States, this book is an outgrowth of America's thirst for more knowledge of itself, depicted in a clearly understandable and easily read format and backed up by competent research. This delicate blending has been accomplished so ably by Mr. Chase that he has not only created a vehicle of exceptional educational value, but also produced a visual documentation of aperiod of America's development that will remain ageless.
The Louisiana Purchase was, after Independence, the single biggest influence on the formation of the nation as we now know it, as it opened the way forwestward expansion. The purchase included the present-day states of
Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, part of Texas, part of Colorado, part of New Mexico
