Brash and skeptical when she first came to the USA in the 1950s, Jan Morris cast a dubious eye on the saintly image of Abraham Lincoln and the log-cabin-to-the-White-House legend that surrounded him. In innumerable visits over the last 50 years she has tried to make up her mind about the enigmatic 16th president and finally crystallized her conclusions in this portrait - part historical fact, part travelogue, part reconstruction and part speculation.
