The Life of Abraham Lincoln

eBook (ePub)
(15 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
Light and enjoyable biography of America's 16th president, Ketcham draws heavily on personal accounts to portray a more human and accesible Lincoln. Particular attention is paid to Lincoln's relationship with rivals such as Douglas, Seward, Chase, McCllenan, and Greeley. The reading takes on an extended story-telling fireside chat feeling, where you know and trust the storyteller - who happens to know the kinds of things you would be interested in knowing. An excellent read. The author covers the timeline of Lincoln's life in a concise but descriptive manner. The book is a primer that guides you through the numerous facets of Lincoln life. Interestingly narrated as an admirer of his life from a first hand experience. It renewed my belief in the greatness of leaders, and portrayed Lincoln's qualities so admirably.

    This book was written by Henry Ketcham only 36 years after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. To put that in perspective, it is more recent to Ketcham than President Kennedy's assassination is to us, and Abraham's son Robert was still alive, as well as many other people who knew Abraham Lincoln firsthand. I think that gives Mr. Ketcham a distinct advantage over modern Lincoln biographers, not just from temporal proximity but also from a more accepted national feeling in 1901 of not sugarcoating history nearly as much as we do today. Mr. Ketcham's narration and inclusion of facts is pretty extraordinary, and from Abe's birth to his first practicing in law, you can see his character and quest for knowledge and people skills and humbleness being built and tempered to endure to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing, in any situation, and even go far beyond that, and carrying that forward into his political life and presidency. This is a model that we in 21st century... More > America very much need to have shown to us, and Mr. Ketcham serves us well even today by providing that in this book. Bill Oct 26, 2012< Less
