KIRKUS REVIEW

A moving chronicle, evocative, poetic -- covering the formative years of the young Lincoln, from 21 to 28, written in celebration of Lincoln's first Inauguration, March 4, 1861. It was in these years in New Salem that he took his first faltering steps into politics, the study of law, the arena of debate. Douglas Gorsline's muted soft pencil drawings add stature to a curtailed text. A fine piece of book making.
