Winner Description: 
by Russell Freedman, and published by Clarion
Winner Blurb: 

In this compelling portrait of a man too often portrayed as a folk hero, Freedman has set new standards for juvenile biography.  He utilizes a crisp narrative to describe Lincoln's boyhood, events that surround his presidency and his assassination.  Liberal use of carefully selected photographs, maps and historical documents enhance and expand the readable and informative text.  Extensive research, incorporating Lincoln's own words, has made this sadly humorous man come alive.
