Book Description: Abraham Lincoln "Honest Abe" "Honest Abe" was written to act as your easy-to-read reference point that contains from cover to cover everything you need to know about the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. "Honest Abe" isn't just a book of reference, though. Throughout the book, I have sought to paint the picture of the scenes I describe, so that this is more than an academic treatise that collects dust on your desk. This book is meant to be more of a movie, a movie that plays out in your head as you read its vivid details, so that you can feel that you were there as it was happening. This is certainly a small booklet, but it is densely packed with information that so many historians tend to overlook. Lincoln's story is a gripping tale, from beginning to end. Given the massive nature of his accomplishments and the nearly six decades he lived, you might wonder how these thirty-five thousand words can adequately cover so much ground. This booklet can and will give you an excellent grasp of the man - as a son, as a younger brother, as a father, as a thinker, as a politician, and of course as our sixteenth president.
