From his hardscrabble beginnings though perhaps the most heartrending trauma this country has ever known, Freedman shows the real Lincoln, public and private. Seeing Lincoln at home and in his private moments, readers will understand his depth as a man russel, as a leader. Freedman understands child readers as well as he understands history and writing.
Although he covers hefty political and social material, he does not mire himself in detail. He knows when to add an explanation and when to keep his sentences short and to the point.
