The United States purchased approximately 828,000,000 square miles of territory from France, thereby doubling the size of the young republic. Four chapters in this book detail the purchase of this land deal, which is considered one of the most important achievements of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency. Excellent pictures and moderately sized font make this an excellent choice for young students.
