About the Author:

Benjamin P. Thomas [1902-56] was the author of Abraham Lincoln: A Biography and Lincoln's New Salem. Michael Burlingame is the author of The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln and has edited nine volumes of Lincoln source materials.

Review:

"Here you'll get tall tales and clever barbs Lincoln shot at political opponents. You'll see how he used humor to defuse tension, illuminate a point, and put others at ease. And, you'll see him from the eyes of political friends and foes."
