A beautifully told story of young Abraham Lincolns coming-of-age

Drawn from the early chapters of Carl Sandburgs Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years, this is the story of Abraham Lincolns childhood. Growing up poor on the family farm, Abe did chores, helped his father cut down trees, and expertly skinned animals and cured hides. As a young man, he became an avid reader. When he witnessed a slave auction while on a flatboat trip down the Mississippi, he was forever changedand so was the future of America. This is the remarkable story of Lincolns youth, early America, and the pioneer life that shaped one of our countrys greatest presidents.
