Renowned on both sides of the Atlantic as one of this century's finest writers on history and travel; Jan Morris is part of the long tradition of foreign observers who are able to illuminate America for Americans. Here she looks at Abraham Lincoln from her singular perspective, and the result is a historical journey free of sentiment and nostalgia. Morris has traveled Lincoln's road from his alleged log cabin birthplace to the box in Ford's theater, willing herself into his time and place. With wit and sagacity, bringing us as close as she can to the presence of the man, she reveals the real Lincoln.
