Reader recommendations: One Man Great Enough

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

By

What a joy to find One Man Great Enough by journalist John C. Waugh, a very readable history about Lincoln's road to the Civil War. Reading this book I found out about Albion, Me., martyr Elijah Parish Lovejoy who died in Illinois due to his abolitionist press. I also learned about Vermont legislator Dan Stone who, early on, cowrote with Lincoln early on resolutions opposing slavery. There is so much readable, interesting history in this scholarly book about Lincoln.
