This was reviewed as an adult book on Page 520. Actually, I th long life will be for teen age readers. There Daugherty is already an accepted -ality, claimed as the young people's own among American artists. This might be a companion volume to his Daniel Boone; there's a ruggedness, a vigor, a vitality to his work that fits admirably the whole spirit of Lincoln, as it does Daniel Boone. The story deals chiefly with Lincoln's youth, though it carries through to the tragic end. Daugherty once again has done his lithographs on stone, and the effect of the reproductions has that richness, that warmth that no other medium quite secures.
