Jan Jacobi, Young Lincoln, 1st ed., Signed on Bookplate, Ages 10-14
Young Lincoln Brings History to Life
With Young Lincoln Jan Jacobi brings us Abraham Lincoln growing up on the American frontier in Indiana. It’s cold, there isn’t usually enough to eat, there’s nothing at all to read, and the one job that awaits him is farmer, like his overbearing father. This is a book for young people, recommended for 10-14 year-olds.
But a chance to travel down the Mississippi river offers Lincoln the opportunity to see and meet people he has never dreamed of. His eyes are opened and he can’t go back to being the boy he was before.
With the help of his friends,Lincoln will strike out to find his own path. Obstacles wait around every river bend, and the shadow of death is never far, but nothing will stop him from becoming the man he knows he can be. You might think you know the end of his story, but you have no idea what it took to get there.
The sequel to Young Lincoln, Lincoln in Springfield, is also available.
