    " This was a good high level view of Lincoln. There were several good facts and interesting stories. The story closed well and provided a good background for Lincoln. "

    " Our entire family, ages 6 to 37, really liked this book. The photos are mesmerizing, and the accompanying text, when you can tear your eyes away from the photos to read it, is well-written and informative. "

    " As an avid Lincoln reader, I was thrilled when this $50 edition showed up at Tower Records (R.I.P.) for $12.99. I knew there was a reason I kept putting off buying it at full price... It remains one of my all-time faves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 11/28/2011

    " While not the best written Lincoln biography I've read, this book is worth the reading for the fabulous photo collection of Kunhardt's grandfather, Frederick Meserve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 11/3/2011

    " This was a well written and interesting book on Abraham Lincoln and his life. There was a lot in there that I didn't know. I learned a lot from this book and loved the illustrations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zigforas | 10/27/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 10/7/2011

    " I read this book because at my mom's house, Lincoln books are one of the only options you have. That or Nancy Drew; I took the high road on this one. I was surprised at how much I learned and enjoyed as I read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peregrine 12 | 10/6/2011

    " The photographs are incredible. The US history displayed here makes me wonder how anyone could have survived it all, much less gone on to forge a new kind of nation. This book is a must-have for fans of Lincoln-era stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 6/17/2010

    " Fascinating stories about one of our favorite presidents. I loved learning about his life as a boy, and also about his relationship with Mary Todd. After reading this book, I respect Mr. Lincoln even more! Did you know Thanksgiving was his idea? As was paper currency! Well done, sir! "
