Biographical and Professional Information

Shaw is a photographer who has published books, calendars and cards since 1986. In 1997, he started Wild Perceptions - a company dedicated to wonders of the natural world.

Robert's newest book is Abraham Lincoln Traveled This Way. It explores the places and the land that were a part of Abraham Lincoln’s life—from his early years in Kentucky and Indiana, through the 29 years he lived in Illinois, until he went east to Washington, D.C. to serve as President.

Discover The America Lincoln Knew with renowned Lincoln historian Michael Burlingame, author of the definitive biography Abraham Lincoln: A Life and The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln, along with several edited volumes.

Abraham Lincoln’s story is told at over 70 Lincoln historic sites and dozens of other locations Lincoln traveled, including 18 National and State Historic Sites, 2 National Memorials, and a National Monument, with 18 Lincoln sites being designated National Historic Landmarks. At least 16 historic sites are dedicated exclusively to Abraham Lincoln.

These places of tribute tell the story of Lincoln’s life.
