A Short Life of Abraham Lincoln

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: John George Nicolay

Narrated By: John Lieder

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2012

Duration: 18 hours 32 minutes


John G. Nicolay was Abraham Lincoln's private White House secretary. With assistant secretary, John Hay, he wrote the two volume definitive biography of Lincoln, "Abraham Lincoln, a Biography." Although this is a condensation by Nicolay of that biography, it is still a sizable work and a fairly thorough treatment of the life of the 16th president of the United States. Summary by John Lieder.


  • Jim Donnelson

    Good book, worth the time. The information is pretty common that is to say not much new here. Still interesting.

  • Cheryl Stevenson

    This is not bad but almost a children's book. Very basic and simple.

  • Ronnie Lonoff book yet on Lincoln...narration was great as well.
