A cogent narrative and nearly 100 photographs document the life of Abraham Lincoln and the times in which he lived. Through frequent use of direct quotes from Lincoln and the people who loved or hated him, Freedman manages to bring a larger-than-life historical legend down to earth, focusing on his personal ambition and sense of failure, his wit and melancholy. (Age 11 and older)
