When Abraham Lincoln was born, slavery was an everyday part of life. Even so, Abe didn't like it. As he grew older, he worked to aid his countrymen regardless of their color. As a surveyor, Abe helped people inspect their land. As a lawyer, he made sure people were treated fairly in court. But he wanted to do even more. After years of hard work, he became president of the United States and ended slavery forever.
Authentic but seldom recounted stories are included in this heartwarming biography of America's 16th president. Color illustrations catch the spirit of Lincoln and his era.
