THE RAIL SPLITTER
From John Cribb, author of the acclaimed novel Old Abe, comes a new work of historical fiction that brings Abraham Lincoln to life as never before. The Rail Splitter tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s remarkable journey from a log cabin to the threshold of the White House—a journey that turns him into one of America’s most beloved heroes. We walk beside him on every page of this spellbinding novel and come to know his hopes and struggles on his winding path to greatness.
Old Abe is the story of the last five years of Abraham Lincoln’s life, one of the most remarkable lives in history. Come with him on his extraordinary journey, from his stunning election in 1860 and through the calamity of the Civil War to his death at the height of power. Old Abe brings Lincoln to life as the central character in the story of America’s greatest tragedy and its “new birth of freedom,” as Lincoln himself put it.
