Carl Sandburg Penelope Niven
Carl Sandburg grew up in our hometown and I live a few blocks from his birthplace. In grade schools children donate pennies for upkeep of the Sandburg Birthplace.

I read this book a few years ago as a library book and it was so good I decided read it again. It is a fascinating account of the life of Carl Sandburg. Including his years at Lombard College, riding boxcars and in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Some books seem to control your life until you finish them; this is one of those books.

I was drawn to Sandburg through his voluminous biography of Lincoln, which I also could not put down. Sandburg also wrote his own autobiography "Always The Young Strangers." If you have not read it you should read it as well as this one.

Bought this for a gift. The recipient LOVED it. And he's a big Sandburg fan. They sell this item at the Carl Sandburg home gift shop.

I made it to the end, but Niven's writing did not enthrall me. Although the book covers the span of Sandburg's life and documents the various events in his life, I thought much of her writing was matter of fact and dry. 12-2013
