A beautifully told story of young Abraham LincolnÂs coming-of-age

Drawn from the early chapters of Carl SandburgÂs Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years, this is the story of Abraham LincolnÂs childhood. Growing up poor on the family farm, Abe did chores, helped his father cut down trees, and expertly skinned animals and cured hides. As a young man, he became an avid reader. When he witnessed a slave auction while on a flatboat trip down the Mississippi, he was forever changedand so was the future of America. This is the remarkable story of LincolnÂs youth, early America, and the pioneer life that shaped one of our countryÂs greatest presidents.
