An alternate history novel from the 1840s to the end of that century. How the disobedience of a presidential emissary voided the opportunity to stop our nation's thrust into the infamous Civil War, the casualties of which still exceed the total of all other wars our nation has fought. In Midas Sheffield & Co. the emissary is arrested, the nation saves $25 million, gains more than twenty-five states, and a severe decades-long depression evaporates. In Midas from the 1870s onward, the lead characters take on the roles of some historical persons. Hence, fiction that might have been real. There is incest, romance, daring, fast-paced change in reality that has been buried in history. It is a portrait of what might have been truth.
