The lifetime of Abraham Lincoln, America's maximum president, in a brand new, illustrated variation of the Newbery Honor classic.Clara Ingram Judson's Newbery Honor booklet is a richly drawn biography of Abraham Lincoln from his backwoods boyhood, to his days as a shopkeeper and attorney, his access into politics, and at last via his awesome presidency and tragic assassination. Judson provides Lincoln as he was--the plain-spoken and sensible guy, usually ridiculed as a rustic bumpkin, who gained the Civil battle, ended slavery, and stored the Union. Judson's narrative is enlivened by means of her visits to his domestic and bright descriptions of the Lincoln family's pioneer lifestyles.
