Publisher's Summary

An audiobook to be treasured by all history buffs: the companion volume to the ABC TV documentary.

This remarkable biography presents Abraham Lincoln as we have never before seen him. The insightful and vibrant narrative draws extensively on diaries, letters, and other primary sources to provide a remarkably close-up view of Lincoln: the boy, the homespun politician, the president, the military leader, the man with his family. Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr., Philip B. Kunhardt III and Peter W. Kunhardt give us the fascinating life, from birth to death, of the extraordinary man who was the 16th president of the United States.

The smoothe voice of Frank Langella

I was originally just trying to find what Frank Langella was narrating. I happened to see this book and, a lover of historical prose, I was immediately thrilled by the combination of interesting story and understated narration. This book will seduce you, which is great because it truly is a great book.
