An intimate, moving portrait of Abraham Lincoln as rarely seenthrough the eyes of his childrenand captured in exquisite illustrations.
Historians claim him as one of Americas most revered presidents. But to his rambunctious sons, Abraham Lincoln was above all a playful and loving father. Here is Lincoln as seen by two of his boys: Willie, thrilled to be on his first train trip when Lincoln was deciding to run for president; Willie and Tad barging into Cabinet meetings to lift Lincolns spirits in the early days of the Civil War, Tad accompanying him to Richmond just after the Souths defeat. With the war raging and the Union under siege, we see history unfolding through Willies eyes and then through Tads and we see Lincoln rising above his own inborn sadness and personal tragedy through his devotion to his sons. With evocative and engaging illustrations by P.J. Lynch, Rosemary Wells offers a carefully researched biography that gives us a Lincoln not frozen in time but accessible and utterly real. Back matter includes an authors note.
