Abstract:

Emerson Hough (June 28, 1857 - April 30, 1923) wrote westerns and historical novels. His tales about the Oregon Trail, The Mississippi Bubble and The Covered Wagon, were successfully adapted for film.

A historical novel about the extraordinary life of John Law, best known for his role in introducing paper money in France and promoting the Mississippi Company. The subsequent price inflation and bubble in Mississippi Company shares are well known as a classic case of financial mania, comparable to the Dutch tulip mania and the South Sea Bubble in England. The collapse of the bubble is the climax of the novel -- Amazon.
