The Lincolns: A Scrapbook Look at Abraham and Mary


  • The scrapbook technique . . . remains fresh and lively, a great way to provide a huge amount of information in a format that invites both browsing and in-depth study.
  • Fleming offers another standout biographical title, this time twining accounts of two lives,Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, into one fascinating whole.
  • It’s hard to imagine a more engaging or well-told biography of the Lincolns.
