From the Editor's Preface:
Mr. Brooks' tale of the lifetime of Abraham Lincoln is a special addition to our wisdom of the fellow and of the scenes during which he handed in turning into an uplifter of the human race. Mr. Brooks knew Lincoln good in Illinois, in addition to later in Washington. He was once himself a pioneer in the course of probably the most stirring instances at the border, and, consequently, he has written in strange sympathy with the problems and triumphs of border lifestyles.

In the crude atmosphere that then have been the lot of all, the tale of Lincoln's formative years and early manhood possesses a weird curiosity. In this sort of story we seize gleams of a real nature tucked away within the lank shape and homespun, and we watch a personality develop transparent defined in the course of the energy of a robust ethical nature. The desolate tract afforded the best option exams of manly features, and stored the susceptible at bay. The awl, the maul,
and the grubbing-hoe replied in simple terms to the short eye and the sinewy firame. Abraham Lincoln, strong-hearted and precise, swung, break up, and dug in " the land of full-grown males " ; and he emerged thence a pacesetter between males.

His reviews have been singularly diverse and dramatic ; but, on the whole, they have been standard of unnamed millions of our fellows who wrote at the huge West the most powerful features of our race.
