In this one-volume biography, Benjamin P. Thomas presents all the significant events and achievements in the life of one of the greatest presidents, and greatest men, in American history. Aside from the usual myth-making of this American figure, e.g. his humble upbringing by a pioneer family, his diligent dedication to self-education, and his remarkable rise from small-town lawyer to presidential candidate, Thomas also gives a full account of a skillful politician and complicated man, who took on an enormous amount of personal and public responsibility during the greatest crisis in our nation's history.--From publisher description.
