From the front flap:

"Noted Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer has created a treasury of Abraham Lincoln's most powerful personal letters and brilliant speeches. He provides a vivid biography and concise introduction to each section.

Abraham Lincoln's character and beliefs are evident in his writings. Readers will follow Lincoln's transformation from an outgoing but naive country lawyer to an outspoken politician and finally to an embattled wartime president, full of conviction and determination. But Lincoln always found time to tell a funny story and appreciate a good laugh! And, as father and husband, Lincoln was playful, tender, and devoted. Holzer proves there is no better way to know Lincoln than through the magic of his words."
