Lincoln Summary

Lincoln: A Foreigner's Quest by Jan Morris

With a fresh eye and inimitable style, the peerless travel and history writer Jan Morris journeys through the life of Abraham Lincoln to sketch an insightful new portrait of America's sixteenth president, one of our greatest and most enigmatic figures. Looking past his saintly image and log-cabin legend, Morris travels from Lincoln's birthplace to the White House to the infamous Ford theatre and conjures him in public and in private, as politician and as father, as commander-in-chief and as husband. With her skepticism and humour and marvellous sense of place, Morris seamlessly blends narrative, history, and biography to reveal the man behind the myth.
