“A man unmatched among our most honored American heroes.”

Meet the underdog who went from a log cabin to the White House—America’s favorite president: Abraham Lincoln! Perfect for young readers, these entertaining stories teach courage in fighting the unpopular fight, determination to press through trials with strength, and most important, how using creativity and ingenuity can lead to victory.

Did you know that Abe taught himself to write by drawing in the snow and on a shovel? Or that he was hired as a store clerk for his quick thinking and honesty? And that he taught himself how to be a lawyer out of a book he discovered in a barrel? Whether he was saving cargo boats on the Mississippi or a nation bent upon destroying itself, Abe’s creative thinking, integrity, and get-it-done attitude set him apart as a man among men—a hero.
