Sandburg's highly anecdotal selection covers Lincoln's legal career and political campaigning during the six years before his presidency. Dick Estell reads in a folksy tone, reminiscent of Lincoln's own speaking style. Impassioned debates between Lincoln and his opponents, legal and political, are tensely drawn. Lincoln's famous stories and witticisms are light and spirited. Throughout the work, Estell captures Lincoln's humanity: his passion, loneliness, sincerity and shrewdness. An excellent subject for this highly talented narrator, Abraham Lincoln read by Dick Estell comes highly recommended. J.S.G.
