A cornerstone title in Lincoln history, a biography drawn from extensive close research and actual contact with the localities concerned. Tarbell's pilgrimage began in Hingham, Massachusetts, where the first immigrant Lincolns settled and extended to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois to trace the roads that seven successive generations of Lincoln pioneers traveled. It then extends to Lincoln's birth and youth; his intellectual awakening; his days as a surveyor, law student and legislator; his election to the Illinois State Legislature; his love and loss of his first great love Ann Rutledge; his marriage to Mary Todd; his election to Congress; his path to the Presidency.
