Synopsis

This book offers stories, anecdotes, and never-before-seen images and artifacts from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum's vault. It positions Lincoln as a man of his century, a time ripe with Industrial Revolution, travel and culture, abolition, and war. Worldwide events figure into the story: Britain's emergence as a democracy, Russia's freeing of the serfs, Japan's opening to foreign trade, Germany's unity under Bismarck. Every page reflects the humor, integrity, and unique style of leadership that made Abe Lincoln a legend. Quote boxes reveal his sayings; cartoons give a glimpse of him from domestic and foreign shores; sidebars highlight archaeological discoveries, such as the store where young Lincoln held his first job. Personal incidents tell of his special relationship with son Willy; his love for his wife; and the reverence he has inspired in such luminaries as Tolstoy, Gandhi, and Thatcher.

K. M. Kostyal's many books and articles have covered the heroics of people and animals, the subtleties of place, and the richness of ideas and aspirations that propel human behavior. A longtime writer for National Geographic, she has authored books on the lives of polar explorers, war heroes, and the child survivors of war. Her most recent work, Great Migrations, is the official companion book to the National Geographic Channel's acclaimed series by the same name. In her years in publishing, she has worked as a senior editor at both National Geographic magazine and the National Geographic Book Division, as a contributing editor to National Geographic Traveler, and as a contributor to Paraculture Books and to Islands and AARP magazines. She's the recipient of two Lowell Thomas Awards and a member of Ripple Effect Images.
