The Life of Abraham Lincoln | [Henry Ketcham]

The Life of Abraham Lincoln

In his introduction to The Life of Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ketcham notes that there has been so much written about Lincoln that the legend has begun to obscure, if not to efface, the man. “In this biography the single purpose has been to present the living man with such distinctness of outline that the reader may have a sort of feeling of being acquainted with him.”

Audible Editor Reviews

Henry Ketcham wrote his reverential - but never cloying - biography of Abraham Lincoln in 1901, long after the 16th president of the United States was assassinated and even longer since Ketcham was promoted to brigadier general in the Union Army. And yet the human subject of this audiobook feels immediately present, admirably resurrected by the love of a writer.

Actor Brian Troxell has an extensive resume in film, television, and voice work. In his performance of The Life of Abraham Lincoln he takes listeners on a colorful journey from the president's impoverished childhood on the western frontier through the Civil War. Troxell has a lot of ground to cover, but he does so with style and vigor, further enlivening material that is already intimate and accessible to listeners.

Publisher's Summary

In his introduction to The Life of Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ketcham notes that there has been so much written about Lincoln that the legend has begun to obscure, if not to efface, the man. “In this biography the single purpose has been to present the living man with such distinctness of outline that the reader may have a sort of feeling of being acquainted with him.”

Ketcham’s clearly-written, unadorned account of Lincoln’s life achieves its stated purpose, never removing its focus from the man who became the 16th President of the United States and led the nation through some of its most turbulent and difficult times.

    "Good overview of Lincoln's life"
    Any additional comments?

    Good narration, well told overview of Lincoln's life. If you're looking to learn more about Lincoln, this is a good starting point to understand his life broadly, and from here you can decide what aspects of his life you want to study more.
