9780578077680: Lincoln Raw: a biographical novel

Abraham Lincoln—go beyond the legend. He’s inescapably human, reliving the gauntlet of tragedy and abuse that should have consumed him, exposing his private reasons for standing firm on the brink of war.

Events don’t make history, people do. This is a personal story about a man who changed the world.

Seven-year-old Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood dies when his father drags their family from the relative comfort of Kentucky into an unforgiving Indiana wilderness. While suffering rebuke for teaching himself to read and write, Abraham endures rumors of illegitimate birth, escapes death a half-dozen times, labors to repay his father’s debts, and grieves the deaths of his infant brother, angel mother, precious sister, and beloved sweetheart.

By his early thirties, he casts off his parents’ religion, becomes estranged from his closest friend, and loses faith in his own character when he breaks an engagement to marry a woman he doesn’t love. He spirals into life-threatening depression. In the prime of life, unable to keep a pledge made to his dying mother to become someone special, he wrestles with self-doubt, abandons politics, and resigns himself to a life of mediocrity. But when his long-time rival opens the door for slavery’s expansion across half the globe, Lincoln faces the greatest challenge of his life—his beloved country is being ripped apart.

Grounded in historical record, the story is enriched by insights gleaned from the works of prominent Lincoln biographers—Harold Holzer, Michael Burlingame, Douglas Wilson, Allen Guelzo, and Joshua Shenk, to credit a few.

Praise for Lincoln Raw:

This is story-telling of a high order. –Chris Robinson, author of The Black Gun

Impeccably written … rock solid scholarship … the humanity of this most humane of men touches my heart and uplifts my soul.—Kathleen Kelly Garlock, author of Gone for a Soldier

... a monumental undertaking … great success. —John Phillip, author of Lady on the Cliff.

A masterful piece of writing. —Darius Stransky, author of The King’s Jew

… an extremely well written insight into the personality of Lincoln - turning him into a living breathing person, rather than just a historical figure. —Kate Murdoch, author of Stone Circle

Many speculate about the causes of Lincoln's "melancholy" but Fowler makes the reader feel them. —John C. Gregory, author of The Schomburgk Line

Descrizione libro Harbor Hill Publishing, 2014. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Inescapably human, Abraham Lincoln tells his own coming-of-age story. He's nerdy, eccentric, awkward, rustic, vulnerable, depressed, sly, witty, brilliant, driven. Lincoln Raw--a biographical novel proves that no matter what raw materials we're made of or what mistakes we make along our journeys, our values, not our circumstances, determine who we become.Seven-year-old Abraham Lincoln's boyhood dies when his father drags their family from the relative comfort of Kentucky into an unforgiving Indiana wilderness. While suffering rebuke for teaching himself to read and write, Abraham endures rumors of illegitimate birth, escapes death a half-dozen times, labors to repay his father's debts, and grieves the deaths of his infant brother, angel mother, precious sister, and beloved sweetheart. By his early thirties, he casts off his parents' religion, becomes estranged from his closest friend, and loses faith in his own character when he breaks an engagement to marry a woman he doesn't love. He spirals into life-threatening depression.In the prime of life, unable to keep a pledge made to his dying mother, to become someone special, he wrestles with self-doubt, abandons politics, and resigns himself to a life of mediocrity. But when his long-time rival opens the door for slavery's expansion across half the globe, Lincoln rises to meet the greatest challenge of his life--his beloved country is being ripped apart.Grounded in historical record, the story is enriched by insights gleaned from the works of prominent Lincoln biographers--Harold Holzer, Michael Burlingame, Douglas Wilson, Allen Guelzo, and Joshua Shenk, to credit a few.
