David Herbert DonaldsLincolnis astunningly original portrait of Lincolns lifeand presidency. Donald brilliantlydepicts Lincolns gradual ascent from humblebeginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever- expandingpolitical circles in Illinois, and finally to thepresidency of a country divided by civil war.Donald goes beyond biography, illuminating thegradual development of Lincolns character,chronicling his tremendous capacity for evolutionand growth, thus illustrating what made it possiblefor a man so inexperienced and so unpreparedfor the presidency to become a great moral leader.In the most troubled of times, here was a manwho led the country out of slavery and preserveda shattered Union -- in short, one of the greatestpresidents this country has ever seen.
