Publisher's Description

“A Lincoln whom no other man than Carl Sandburg could have given us.” —Mark Van Doren, New York Herald Tribune Book Review

Originally published in six volumes, which sold more than one million copies, Carl Sandburg’s Abraham Lincoln was praised as the most noteworthy historical biography of Sandburg’s generation. He later distilled this monumental work into one volume that critics and readers alike consider his greatest work of nonfiction, as well as the most distinguished, authoritative biography of Lincoln ever published.

Growing up in an Illinois prairie town, Sandburg listened to stories of old-timers who had known Lincoln. By the time this single-volume edition was competed, he had spent a lifetime studying, researching, and writing about our sixteenth president. His extraordinary portrait brings fully to life the country lawyer who would become one of the most influential and beloved presidents of the American republic.

Author Bio

Carl Sandburg was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the first for History in 1940 for his six-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln, and the second for Poetry in 1951 for his Complete Poems. Born in Illinois of Swedish immigrant parents, Sandburg worked early in a wide variety of jobs, ranging from shoeshine-boy, milkman, fireman, and farmhand, to a soldier in the Spanish-American War. After college he went on to become a newspaperman, a political organizer, a collector of folk songs, author of childrens books, lecturer, poet and historian. The son of a man who could not write his own name, Carl Sandburg went on to write over thirty books and earned the title in America of The Poet of the People.
