WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT by Daniel Walker Howe (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). This addition to the esteemed Oxford History of the United States series illuminates American history from the battle of New Orleans to the end of the Mexican-American War, an era that saw a great transformation. Historian Howe weaves together political and military events with social, economic, and cultural history. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Patrick Cullen. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Patrick Cullen ably narrates this extensive audiobook. His unadorned reading style mirrors author Howe's thesis that the historian's task is to explain the past, not to judge it.” (AudioFile) • EXPERIENCE. About 33 hours of narration.

He examines the rise of Andrew Jackson and his Democratic party but contends that John Quincy Adams and other advocates of public education, economic integration, and the rights of blacks, women, and Indians were the true prophets of America’s future. Howe’s panoramic narrative, weaving social, economic, and cultural history together with political and military events, culminates with the war against Mexico that gained California and Texas for the United States.
