Abraham Lincoln, Friend of the People

Written by Clara Ingram Judson

  • 1951 Newbery Medal Honor Book

This Newbery Honor Book—from a three-time Newbery Honor author—paints an indelible portrait of the prairie president. Clara Ingram Judson presents Lincoln in all his gauntness, gawkiness, and greatness: a backwoods boy who became President and saved the Union. Judson’s careful reading is enlivened by her visits to his home and vivid descriptions of the Lincoln family’s pioneer life. She reveals the unforgettable story from his boyhood and days as a shopkeeper and lawyer, to Lincoln’s first elected offices and his election as president, the Civil War, and assassination.
