Recommends it for: everyone
Written in 1923, this book is treasure chest of interviews with people who knew Lincoln and other details of his life that I'd never heard. The writing style is pleasantly old-fashioned with a clarity of grammar and detail that is missing from more modern works. Thank you to Miss Tarbell for this warm history of Lincoln.
