CARL SANDBURG (1878–1967) was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, first in 1940 for his biography of Abraham Lincoln and again in 1951 for Complete Poems. Before becoming known as a poet, he worked as a milkman, an ice harvester, a dishwasher, a salesman, a fireman, and a journalist. Among his classics are the Rootabaga Stories, which he wrote for his young daughters at the beginning of his long and distinguished literary career.
Turn off the TV, and read a 5-star book, for example.
Beautifully written, brimming with stories both humorous and tragic, Sandburg's biography brings the reader in touch with the very soul of Lincoln.
For anyone that has an interest in American History and enjoys Biographies, this book is worth reading.
Although it is unfortunate that Sandberg did a poor job of citing his sources, this book is a fascinating read--dense reading, but an invaluable resource. Read morePublished 20 days ago by harborsparrow
