Includes a brief biography of President Lincoln, a list of locations where he walked, and photographs of places, buildings, and objects significant in his life.
Raymond Bial recently retired from his position as a college library director at the University of Illinois. He continues to create the beautiful photo-essays that have garnered him awards and high praise. His Amish Home was an ALA Notable Book, and, in a starred review, Booklist called his Tenement: Immigrant Life on the Lower East Side “an excellent example of how books can bring the past into the present.” Raymond lives in Urbana, Illinois, with his wife and two younger children, Sarah and Luke. His oldest daughter, Anna, is a fashion designer in New York City.
“The facts of Lincoln’s life are well known, but Bial’s direct approach has immediacy that will make an impression on readers.”—Kirkus Reviews.
“Bial’s expressive text is as outstanding as his full-color photographs. A rich informative narrative that begs to be read out loud.”—School Library Journal
