"First published in 1890, the book depicts the president's reaction to the defeats at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, the difficulties encountered (and presented) by Mary Lincoln, the president's relations with George B. McClellan and other generals, and the anxiety preceding the Merrimack's epic battle with the Monitor. In 1866 Stoddard also penned thirteen "White House Sketches" about his time in Lincoln's service. Originally published in an obscure New York newspaper, these essays - never previously collected - supplement Stoddard's memoir. Together the memoir and sketches provide an intimate look at the sixteenth president during a time of crisis."--Jacket

Tom Sawyer abroad ; Tom Sawyer detective by Mark Twain( Book )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
These unjustly neglected works are among the most enjoyable of Mark Twain's novels. Tom Sawyer Abroad sets the three characters so popular in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn--Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Jim--and sends them on a balloon trip to Africa. The balloon has wings and fans which can propel it a hundred miles an hour in still air and three hundred miles an hour with a stiff tail wind. Tom is again the manager, the one with information and imagination. Huck is still the one with a literal mind and common sense, and Jim, though the oldest, is once more the most limited in experience and the most burdened by superstition. Tom Sawyer, Detective is not only a detective story but also a burlesque of detective stories. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn perform throughout as a youthful imitation of the immensely popular Sherlock Holmes, with Huck as a counterpart of Dr. Watson. To everyone's wonderment Tom deduces who the murderer is, and Huck catches the spirit of the whole when he says "Well, sir, if there'd been a brass band to bust out some music, then, it would 'a' been just the perfectest thing I ever see, and Tom Sawyer he said the same."

First published nearly a century ago, and enhanced with more than 370 of the author's own illustrations, this engagingly written book by a man with a keen appreciation of the joys of nature will delight and instruct boys and girls with its celebration of traditional Native American lore and its helpful hints on how to safely enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring the great outdoors
