Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books that I have read on the Lincoln family history. The accurate accounts of President Lincoln's family has enlightened me greatly in that his family was not a bunch of poor people, but was mostly made up of well to do land owners, and very successful pioneers; people that helped to make this country great.
Ida Tarbell brings to the reader a vivid description of a family who worked hard,prayed hard, struggled, and succeeded in the great drama of the making of a nation. I highly reccomend this book.

Good relaxing read at the young adult level. The book sheds light on the times as well as the ancestral background of Abraham Lincoln. Recommended to his millions of living cousins, as well as the general reader.
