The Long Decade is many stories in one. It is the story of a great and devastating flood. It is the story of millions being lost in the crash of a stock market. It is the story of America during the time of gangsters and G-men. But primarily, it is the story of two men that destiny brought together and who formed an unlikely friendshipa junior reporter and a flamboyant politician.

Young, ambitious, working for a newspaper in Alabama, eager to prove himself, Ryan Covington is sent home to Louisiana to cover the gubernatorial campaign of a candidate most insiders thought could never win. The political machine in New Orleans could not have been more wrong.

Huey P. Long Jr. was unlike any candidate Louisiana had ever seen. With his hillbilly wisdom and speech, Long proved to be the greatest mass communicator ever witnessed. Blessed with tireless energy and a near-photographic memory, Huey Long stirred the crowds to beat the odds and win. With his victory, he built the ultimate political machine. And Ryan Covington was there to witness it all. This is his story.
