Publisher's Summary

This narrative about the creation and early growth of the United Fruit Company comes across like an adventure novel.

The author whisks the listener to Central America to experience the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of a group of visionaries who carved a commercial empire out of virtually uninhabited Central American tropical jungles.

These American businessmen and the people who worked for them were the early pioneers. They overcame tropical disease, financial problems, weather, and other obstacles by innovation and sheer grit.

All of this is splendidly narrated in this important audiobook about a critical driving force in the history of Central America.

Horrible reader

Never again would I listen to this reader!!! Historical story only, written in 1914. Not related to current times.
