Product Overview

Without Old Buck, there would have been no Civil War.Without Old Buck, there would be no President Obama.Without Old Buck, there would be no America as we know it."Old Buck is that rare feat-a tremendously entertaining novel and an astonishingly enlightening one too. Evans... has written a book that will stand the test of time." David Goehring, Harvard University. All the principal characters and events are true. James Buchanan, 15th President, is the titular protagonist. Ann Coleman is the daughter of America's wealthiest war profiteer. Thaddeus Stevens is the nation's leading abolitionist Congressman. Their interwoven personal histories of poisoning, secret romances and the manipulation of memory and events charge this book with an excitement rarely seen, all set against a world of sexuality, slavery, women's rights and war.Old Buck is distinctive and often poetic, reflecting the best writing of the 19th century, yet will resonate strongly
