Nicely done! The biography is fairly standard, although the author has found a few new interesting tidbits, including the fact that Lincoln's father once was paid to round up runaway slaves in KY. The best part of the book is the photography. Every page is brightened by wonderful current photos of places that Lincoln actually saw. Each photo is gorgeous, and it really makes some of the places come alive. These photos alone make this book a must-have for a Lincoln collector. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979880270, Hardcover)

A Modern Photographic Journey Historian Ron Elliott and award-winning photographer John Snell take the reader on a breathtaking, cross-country journey of the sites and scenery from Abraham Lincoln 's rustic birthplace and early homes in Kentucky and Indiana to his military, professional, and political careers in Illinois to Washington, DC and back to his final resting place in Springfield. Elliott 's wit and astute observations on each site's role and significance make the perfect, concise companion to Snell's extraordinary ability to capture on film what we all wish we could see. Scores of historic photos displayed in contrast to today's views coupled with maps, travel directions and recommendations will compel many a reader to load their book, hit the road and experience it for themselves as they are literally "Retracing the Steps of Lincoln.
