Summary, etc.:
Travel with young Abe Lincoln as he journeys up and down the "Father of Waters," the legendary Mississippi River. Sit alongside him as he navigates his flatboat over dams, past rapids, and through shallow water. Sail with him to the bustling port of New Orleans, and back to his home in Illinois. Along the way, you'll become familiar with his inner voice, as you share his deepest thoughts and feelings, and witness his struggle with the pressing ethical question of his day, whether or not slavery should be abolished. By journey's end, you'll come to understand how Abraham Lincoln grew from a naive, idealistic teenager into one of the greatest, most passionate thinkers our country has every known.
