From the Publisher:
David Herbert Donald's Lincoln is a stunningly original portrait of Lincoln's life and presidency. Donald brilliantly depicts Lincoln's gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever- expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war. Donald goes beyond biography, illuminating the gradual development of Lincoln's character, chronicling his tremendous capacity for evolution and growth, thus illustrating what made it possible for a man so inexperienced and so unprepared for the presidency to become a great moral leader. In the most troubled of times, here was a man who led the country out of slavery and preserved a shattered Union -- in short, one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.Draws extensively on Lincoln's personal papers and legal writings to present a biography of the president
Author Bio
David Herbert Donald
David Herbert Donald was a renowned historian of the American Civil War and a Lincoln scholar of note. He is also the winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, one for a highly regarded biography of the novelist Thomas Wolfe called LOOK HOMEWARD. The son of a farmer and a teacher, Donald grew up in Mississippi, got his master's at the University of Illinois, and has taught at several ivy league schools, including Columbia and Harvard. His biography LINCOLN is generally regarded as an essential Lincoln book.

Praise

Newsweek
"In most writing about Lincoln, the resonance is piped in from outside, the milieu from which he sprang, the social and political context in which he acted, his changing image, his enduring influence. In Donald's biography, the resonance emanates from Lincoln himself, who left a powerful impression on everyone who ever met him. Without novelizing, Donald re-creates what it must have been like to be in Lincoln's presence--and even in his head." - David Gates 10/16/1995

"I always thought a Lincoln biography was too formidable a task for me, but after my second Pulitzer, I thought, 'If there are enough people out there who have twice thought I'm a good biographer, I'll try it.'" - David Herbert Donald
