THE PATH OF THE KING (ANCESTRY OF LINCOLN) by John Buchan

THE PATH OF THE KING....WE WONDER THAT SO GREAT A MAN AS ABRAHAM LINCOLN SHOULD SPRING FROM HUMBLE PEOPLE....BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT HIS MORE DISTANT ANCESTRY MIGHT HAVE BEEN? 260 PAGES IN PRINT! A HISTORICAL NOVEL?

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, John Buchan.

In a series of dramatic chapters, Mr. Buchan tells what he imagines to have been the ancestry of Lincoln. The worthy son of a northern chieftain who had come down with his people into Normandy; a Norman knight who fought under Duke William and settled in England; a French knight, emissary of Saint Louis to Kubla Khan; a proud demoiselle, friend to Jeanne d'Arc; a French gentleman who went with Columbus on his second voyage; an avenger of Saint Bartholomew's Day; a friend to Sir Walter Raleigh; a supporter of Cromwell; a soldier of fortune under Marlborough; a mighty hunter in Virginia—all these, says Mr. Buchan, were Lincoln's forebears. Their blood ran in his veins and made him, in James Russell Lowell's phrase, "the last of the kings."
