Was Abraham Lincoln born in a log cabin?
Why did he nearly fight a duel?
Who suggested that Lincoln grow a beard?
Best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis tells the remarkable story of a poor, self-educated boy from Kentucky who became president of a country soon torn by war. In this outstanding biography, Davis weaves a smooth, flowing narrative into his trademark question-and-answer format, peppering the text with informational sidebars and compelling quotes. Maps, reproductions from the period, and striking black-and-white illustrations by Rob Shepperson help capture Lincoln’s character and the fervor of the Civil War era.
