More than a biography of Lincoln or a history of the Civil War, this portrait makes the 16th president accessible to young readers as a human being, rather than as a historic icon or paragon of virtue. Marrin effortlessly uses eyewitness accounts to create setting, to show personality and political climate, and to give voice to the attitudes and hopes of everyday Americans. Photos.
