The life of Abraham Lincoln, America's greatest president, in a new, illustrated edition of the Newbery Honor classic.

Clara Ingram Judson's Newbery Honor Book is a richly drawn biography of Abraham Lincoln from his backwoods boyhood, to his days as a shopkeeper and lawyer, his entry into politics, and finally through his extraordinary presidency and tragic assassination.

Judson presents Lincoln as he was--the plain-spoken and practical man, often ridiculed as a country bumpkin, who won the Civil War, ended slavery, and saved the Union. Judson's narrative is enlivened by her visits to his home and vivid descriptions of the Lincoln family's pioneer life.

Clara Ingram Judson wrote over 70 fiction and nonfiction books for children, three of which were named Newbery Honor Books. In 1960, she won the second Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal for her lasting contribution to children's literature.
