    Travel with us to the days before Abraham Lincoln's historic presidency. Hear the fascinating story of a young man raised in a pioneer environment of hardship, tragedy, and perseverance. Almost killed by a horse's hoof to the head as a child, he learned to clear land with an axe and work the demanding jobs associated with frontier river travel. Essentially self-educated, books were his constant companions. He was raw-boned and gangly while being respected for his empathy and insight. Lincoln's life proves that no matter where a person grows up, whether a sophisticated city or a pioneer village—the true measure of a person is what is in their heart.
