I love Russell Freedman's books, and this was no let down. I also love Lincoln & Douglass, & the Civil War era, so it was a real treat. As usual, Freedman's easy, flowing, but chock full of facts writing style really keeps my interest, and I always learn a lot. I was especially curious about Lincoln's relationship with Douglass, and Douglass' life story. Really good read (and a quick one).
I don't usually review non-fiction books here, but this one was particularly interesting to me. She tells the story of the dog, Rin Tin Tin - where he was found and his rise to movie stardom in the silent picture days. I remember the TV show, but that is quite different from the original movies, and I found the whole story fascinating. I highly recommend to lovers of animals and biographies.
