KIRKUS REVIEW

 An extraordinarily honest, if brief, pictorial portrayal of Abraham Lincoln, whose journey from his humble, one-room-cabin origins to the presidency has taken on epic proportions. In full- color photographs, Bial (Mist Over the Mountains, p. 297, etc.) not only shows the places Lincoln lived, worked, and walked, but discusses the defining events of these places--the death of Lincoln's mother when he was nine, the death of his sister, Sarah, in childbirth, the death of his first love, Ann, when she was 22, and the death of his son, Eddie, barely a toddler. The facts of Lincoln's life are well known, but Bial's direct approach has immediacy that will make an impression on readers. (further reading, bibliography, index) (Biography. 8-12)
