Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years and the War Years

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002 - 762 páginas
Originally published in six volumes, which sold over a million copies, Carl Sandburg's 'Abraham Lincoln' was praised as 'the greatest historical biography of our generation.' Sandburg later distilled this monumental work into this one-volume edition that critics and readers alike consider the author's crowning achievement and the definitive life of Lincoln. Sandburg's extraordinary portrait brings fully to life the young country lawyer as well as the president who became the central figure in the wildest storm that ever shook the American Republic.
