Publisher Comments:

Originally published in six volumes, Sandburgs 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. Index; photographs.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

The author of more than forty books, Sandburg twice won the Pulitzer Prize: for history, with his four-volume ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE WAR YEARS and for poetry, with COMPLETE POEMS. Among the many literary awards he received were the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal, the Poetry Society of America's gold medal, and the Boston Arts Festival Award.
