Despite Mr. Herndon's close association with the American leader who abolished slavery, he still did his share of research, gathering accounts relating to President Lincoln's life in order to present an accurate picture of him as a real man rather than a saint, which is what the official biographers did.
Mr. Weik assisted in rewriting and doing supplementary research work in order to update the work that his co-biographer has already accomplished. He also provided financial support and rewrote most of the initial draft.
What we have now is a very detailed portrait of the assassinated President, covering two volumes. This edition is the first part, covering the subject's birth up to his first appearance at the Illinois Supreme Court.
Despite Mr. Herndon's close association to President Lincoln, there are some portions in this book that would require more prudence, as they have been refuted by the subject's own son. Nevertheless, admirers of the former leader, as well as historians, can glean interesting insights from this volume.
