Description

Carl Sandburg, The Prairie Years & The War Years, handsomely bound.

Sandburg’s monumental work, the one full biography most associated with Abraham Lincoln.  Sandburg collected a huge amount of information for this biography which was praised for presenting a more folksy, “real” Lincoln, not a cold statue.

Despite a number of errors of both fact and interpretation, it nonetheless is a beautifully written, poetic work.

Excellent; as new. Signed
