Hyperion Abes Honest Words: The Life of Abraham Lincoln

From the time he was a young boy roaming the forests of the unsettled Midwest, Abraham Lincoln knew in his heart that slavery was deeply wrong. A voracious reader, Lincoln spent every spare moment of his days filling his mind with knowledge..., from history to literature to mathematics, preparing himself to one day lead the country he loved towards greater equality and prosperity. Despite the obstacles he faced as a self-educated man from the back woods, Lincoln persevered in his political career, and his compassion and honesty gradually earned him the trust of many Americans. As president, he guided the nation through a long and bitter civil war and penned the document that would lead to the end of slavery in the United States. The passion for humanity that defined Lincolns life shines through in this momentous follow-up to Martins Big Words and Johns Secret Dreams. Told in Doreen Rappaports accessible, absorbing prose, and brought to life in powerful illustrations by Kadir Nelson, Abes Honest Words is an epic portrait of a truly great American president.
