Description

A masterful work by Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Herbert Donald, Lincoln is a stunning portrait of Abraham Lincoln’s life and presidency.

Donald brilliantly depicts Lincoln’s gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever-expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war. Donald goes beyond biography, illuminating the gradual development of Lincoln’s character, chronicling his tremendous capacity for evolution and growth, thus illustrating what made it possible for a man so inexperienced and so unprepared for the presidency to become a great moral leader. In the most troubled of times, here was a man who led the country out of slavery and preserved a shattered Union—in short, one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.

Publishers Weekly Review

Great Insight Into Lincoln

The book is a very objective look into Lincoln's life and how his life influenced his decisions, his carrer, and his leadership. The book portrays the true human side of Lincoln. It does not diefy him as some biographies do nor does it attempt to put him down. It merely presents Lincoln and his life showing the very human side of his nature. The book also dispels any idea that Lincoln was pro-slavery as some who wish to rewrite history would claim. Letters by Lincoln himself specifically refute any claim that he was not opposed to slavery even at a very young age. Excellent book and I highly recommend its reading by anyone who enjoys reading about Lincoln's life.
