Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years and the War Years
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002 M10 15 - 800 páginas
Originally published in six volumes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Carl Sandburg's Abraham Lincoln was called "the greatest historical biography of our generation." Sandburg distilled this work into one volume that became the definitive life of Lincoln.
By gleaning every possible reference from history, literature, and popular lore, Sandburg successfully captures not only the legendary president, but also Lincoln the man. He reveals exactly who Lincoln was, and what forces in his life shaped his personality.
More than 100 black-and-white historical photographs and linecuts show Lincoln himself, the places he went, and the people who knew him.
