summary:  With a down-home, folksy flavor, this is an unusual biography of Abe Lincoln that is sure to become a perennial classic. This is Lincoln's story from his birth to his untimely death. Beginning with his humble start in a log cabin in Kentucky, the authors take us through his young life working on the family farm, learning to read and write on his own with only the crudest schooling, his early love of knowledge, and the sad times when he lost his mother. They delve into his adult life as a lawyer, a father, a husband, a politician, a military leader and a president - all the while exploring the many facets of his character - his kindness, his wisdom, his compassion, and his wonderful, quirky humor. Readers will relish this flavor-rich biography that portrays a favorite American hero with rare sensitivity.  Written by Amy Cohn and Suzy Schmidt;  illustrated by David A. Johnson
