SUMMARY

This comic book celebrates the two hundredth anniversary of the LouisianaPurchase, commemorating Americais best buy. It is the result of a blending ofaccurate research work in the field of American history with unexcelledcraftsmanship in the field of cartoon art, as created by the nationally famouscartoonist John Chase.Originally syndicated in strip form in many daily newspapers throughout theUnited States, this book is an outgrowth of Americais thirst for moreknowledge of itself, depicted in a clearly understandable and easily read formatand backed up by competent research. This delicate blending has beenaccomplished so ably by Mr. Chase that he has not only created a vehicle ofexceptional educational value, but also produced a visual documentation of aperiod of Americais development that will remain ageless.The Louisiana Purchase was, after Independence, the single biggest influenceon the formation of the nation as we now know it, as it opened the way forwestward expansion. The purchase included the present-day states ofLouisianaArkansasOklahomaKansasMissouriIowaNebraskaNorth DakotaSouth DakotaMontanaWyomingMinnesotapart of Texaspart of Coloradopart of New MexicoAbout the AuthorJohn Chase received his first national attention as a cartoonist for thenow-defunct New Orleans States-Item . Born and educated in New Orleans,except for art school at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, Chase was also anauthor, an illustrator for national periodicals and many books, and a popularpublic speaker--but only when he could not talk himself out of it, he says.Chaseis abilities as a historian, his facility with words, and his ablecraftsmanship particularly qualify him for this cartoon history, told in wordsand pictures. The story is historically accurate, but amusing and oftendownright funny--after all, it is a cartoonist who is telling this story. He hadthe first regular cartoon on television, which aired on WDSU in New Orleansstarting in 1967. He served as president of the American Association ofEditorial Cartoonists and is the author of five books, including Frenchmen,Desire, Good Children (pb).Chase, John is the author of 'Louisiana Purchase An American Story' with ISBN 9781589800847 and ISBN 1589800842.
