I am really liking this biography. For me it gives a clearer understanding of who Abraham Lincoln really was.
He was born really, really poor, and lived that way for most of his childhood. I really had no idea. His father discouraged his studies and actually tried to interfere. His mother fixed him up in a kind of dress and a bonnet for his first day of school.
Aside from all that, Lincoln clearly was a man apart. He would have to be to rise above this miserable environment. But he read his books, was honest, a peace maker and was one of the finest ever examples or rising above one's circumstances.
The author is very good at laying this out and I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.
