Summary
The words of President Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address are as relevant and meaningful today as they were in 1863. In this handsomely illustrated book, Michael McCurdy's art extends the power and force of Lincoln's speech, imbuing it with an excitement and energy that will ignite the interest of readers of all ages. With a foreword by one of America's preeminent historians, Garry Wills, and an afterword by McCurdy about his great-grandfather who fought at Gettysburg, this bookis at once personal and universal.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-6. An oversize book, this volume includes an introduction by Gary Wills, an afterword by the artist, and the text of the Gettysburg Address. The large black-and-white illustrations feature scenes of the orator and his audience, as well as pictures they might have imagined while listening to the speech--battle scenes and symbolic tableaux. Skillfully composed and occasionally striking, the artwork makes this a good choice for libraries with an audience for a picture-book edition of Lincoln's famous speech. --Carolyn Phelan"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "McCurdy creates powerful, large-scale black-and-white illustrations like those in his Giants in the Land to match Abraham Lincoln's classic speech in this handsome volume. On oversize pages, scenes of Lincoln delivering the address at the Gettysburg battlefield alternate with visualizations of the imagery contained in it. For example, a line of people carrying building tools marches across the pages as Lincoln proclaims that ``it is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work.'' As Lincoln concludes, resolving that ``government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,'' the cheering crowd gazes out from the page into the future-a fitting conclusion to an American classic made new again.
