Format: Hardcover
I live less than ten miles from where this story is centered and the way this book is written it was like walking with the Lincoln Family 200 years ago. Over the last couple of years I have read some really good books about Lincoln, but to me this book is outstanding.

It takes a village to raise a child. "There I Grew Up: Remembering Abraham Lincoln's Indiana Youth" is a look at the Indiana of our sixteenth president's childhood. In his own biography, Lincoln barely spoke of his childhood, but Bartelt hopes to inform and educate readers of Lincoln's youth and the place he was raised. Drawn from first person interviews among other sources, "Here I Grew Up" is a thorough and complete look at a man through his environment.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A surprisingly significant part of the life of Abraham Lincoln was spent in Indiana prior to his big move to Illinois. This book gives the full run down on what is known about young Mr. Lincoln's years in the Little Pigeon Creek Community.

Those with a serious interest in Lincoln's early life story; those interested in the individuals--including Herndon--who searched in Indiana for the living history of Abraham Lincoln after his assassination; and those good citizens of present day Indiana will all enjoy this book.

Mr. Bartlet, a former park ranger at the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, is a just-the-facts type of author who, I think, has done a good job at the important but limited task he undertook.
