"James Wilkinson, Philip Nolan, and Peter Ellis Bean were shrewd, self-seeking individuals who, at one time or another, dealt with or fought for the United States, Mexico, or Spain, which, in 1800, still held the land west of the Mississippi River. Their lives, which interwove, spanned nearly a full century, from Wilkinson's birth in 1757 to Bean's death in 1846." -from the dust jacket.
