Summary
Just a few years before the War of 1812, Natchez-Under-the-Hill rang with the cries of hawkers and harlots, the curses of brawling river boatmen and the clank of slave chains. It was a lusty and turbulent time on the mighty Mississippi. Owen Naylor and Charlotte Dumaine are united in their effort to put steam power on the river, an idea that threatens the traditional reign of the keelboats. They must pit their strength and will against the river's treachery and the men who are willing to fight steam with fire, violence and bloodshed. Against this backdrop is the dramatic battle of New Orleans with the ragtag Americans under the command of Andrew Jackson, a handful of troops standing alone against thousands of British regulars poised to seize the city and control the Mississippi
