About the Author
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.

It begins with the President's grandfather also named Abraham Lincoln, an associate of Daniel Boone, who suggested the land beyond the Cumberland gap was rich with game, fertile lands, and freedom -- you should migrate to Kentucky...
I find these legendary volumes about Abraham Lincoln better than the reviews I have read over the decades. The two flaws I can find is that there is no bibliography nor are there any footnotes. Mr. Sandburg was blessed by living during the time when many of the participants of these tumultuous years were still alive. May God bless his perseverance.
