Lincoln: A Foreigner's Quest free pdf First time in paperback: "A marvelously compressed and persuasive portrayal of this most iconic of American presidents." -New York Times Book Review.

Looking past his saintly image and log-cabin legend, Morris travels from Lincoln's birthplace to the White House to the infamous Ford Theater and conjures him in public and in private, as politician and as father, as commander-in-chief and as husband. With her skepticism and humor and marvelous sense of place, Morris seamlessly blends narrative, history, and biography to reveal the man behind the myth.
