For Adults. John Cribb is a bestselling author who has written about subjects ranging from history to education. He is the author of “Old Abe”, a historical novel depicting the last five years of Abraham Lincoln’s life. “The Rail Splitter” tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s remarkable journey from a log cabin to the threshold of the White House – a journey that turns him into one of America’s most beloved heroes. Like “Old Abe”, Cribb’s acclaimed novel about Lincoln’s years as president, “The Rail Splitter” brings Lincoln to life in a way no other book does. We walk beside him on every page, through Indiana woods and Illinois prairies, and come to know his hopes and struggles on his winding path to greatness. “The Rail Splitter” brings Lincoln to life once again and reminds us that the country he loved is a place of wide-open dreams where extraordinary journeys unfold. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
