Humble Beginnings

book cover image Lincoln

David Herbert Donald's Lincoln is an original portrait. Donald depicts Lincoln's gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to political circles in Illinois, and finally to the White House.

He shows how a man so inexperienced - Lincoln really was born in a log cabin - became a great moral leader.

Many regard Donald's biography as the best beginner's book on the 16th President.
