Summary

Summary

The critically acclaimed Max Byrd is both a best-selling author of historical fiction and an award-winning writer of detective novels. In Grant, he delivers a thoroughly entertaining novel covering the final years of Ulysses S. Grant's troubled life. It is 1880, and Grant has just completed a triumphant world tour. When he decides to try for an unprecented third presidential term, his life begins to fall apart. He loses the nomination during a rowdy convention, goes bankrupt shortly thereafter, and subsequently learns he has throat cancer. While the embattled man fights to save his family from poverty before he dies, two journalists--one supportive and one resentful--shed light on the spectacular life of an extraordinary person. Grant is deeply researched, moving historical fiction that gets to the core of one of the Union's greatest Civil War heroes, and perhaps America's most legendary drunkard. With dramatic flair, narrator George Guidall whisks listeners back to a monumental time in United States history.
