Summary

Written from a foreigner's point of view, and bioraphical in form, this text is littered with descriptive passages, personal reactions and asides about Abraham Lincoln. Jan Morris follows Lincoln from his birthplace in Kentucky to his death-room in Washington D.C.

Lincoln Summary

Lincoln: A Foreigner's Quest by Jan Morris

When Jan Morris first visited the United States, she was overwhelmed (and irritated) by the national obsession with Abraham Lincoln: the homespun myth of the awkward six-foot-four country boy who rose to unite the nation seemed too good to be true. So she resolved to make up her own mind, visiting the landmarks of his life to do so: his log-cabin birthplace in Kentucky, via Gettysburg and all the way to the Washington theatre where he was assassinated. This work, blending fact, narrative and imagination, is the result.
