Immersing the reader in the isolating poverty and difficult circumstances that shaped Lincoln's character, Slotkin's Lincoln comes of age during a dramatic flatboat journey down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to New Orleans. Witnessing slavery firsthand, Lincoln returns to make his final break with his disapproving father and step out of the wilderness--and into history.
