Review
/* Starred Review */ To one who first read The Prairie Years in manuscript the idea of condensing the two volumes of that modern classic and the four volumes of the subsequent War Years into one volume seemed tinged with sacrilege. The miracle of the achievement is Sandburg's once again, for he has kept the essence of the original intact, so that one is scarcely aware of incision. An artist only could have done it, by rewriting, condensing, reliving the text page by page. Sandburg has managed to retain so much of the anecdotal quality, of the unforgettable vignettes, of what may seem minor incidents which add up to character. He has lost nothing of the sweep of the times, the "grinding drama of drums and blood and agony" -- and at the same time he has retained much of the poetic imagery, the quiet moments of assessing the deeper issues. The majestic rhythm of the larger work has gone, perhaps, but what remains is still greater than, perhaps, any other biographer has achieved. Scholars will still turn to the six volumes for checking their data against the master; the average reader will find rich harvest in this long-awaited single volume work. The publishers' plan extensive promotion and advance advertising to aid in trade distribution. Watch for announcements. (Kirkus Reviews, June 15, 1954)
