Biographical and Professional InformationCarl Sandburg was born Carl August Sandburg. His parents were Swedish immigrants, and his family was so poor that when he finished eighth grade he went to work full time. Sandburg spent many years traveling around the American West working at a wide variety of jobs, including bootblack, harvester, hotel dishwasher, and newspaper reporter. After fighting in the Spanish-American War, he went to Lombard College in his hometown. Although he did very well, he did not take his final exams and returned to being a hobo for several more years. At age 30, he settled down and put his years of traveling and learning American folksongs and stories to good use in this writing. One of America's best-loved poets, Sandburg was also a popular folklorist and a biographer of Lincoln. He is also famous for his book, ''Rootabaga Stories'', written for his daughters. His Abraham Lincoln biography has come to be considered an American epic. He won two Pulitzer Prizes, one for his poetry and another for a biography of Abraham Lincoln. Sandburg also served as Illinois' second Poet Laureate from 1962 until his death in 1967.

Honey and Salt Pa
ISBN: 0156421658 Harvest Books. 1967
In this outstanding collection of seventy-seven poems, Sandburg eloquently celebrates the themes that engaged him as a poet for more than half a century of writing- life, love, and death. Strongly lyrical, these intensely honest poems testify to human courage, frailty, and tenderness and to the enduring wonders of nature.
Chicago Race Riots: Revised
ISBN: 0151171505 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 1969 While Illinois did not segregate the races in public accommodations (as southern states did into the 1960s), public beaches in Chicago were clearly segregated. The most tragic result of this segregation was an incident that set off the 1919 Race Riot in Chicago, five days of rioting in which 23 African Americans and 15 whites were killed. On July 27, 1919 a black teenager named Eugene Williams and a few of his friends traveled to Lake Michigan to swim on a hot summer day. They took out a raft between the black beach at 29th street and the white beach at 26th street. A white man threw rocks at the raft, injuring Williams, who could not swim. A police officer at the 26th Street Beach was unwilling to either arrest the man or help Williams, who later died. Carl Sandburg, a reporter at the time for the Chicago Daily News, chronicled the ensuing race riot in The Chicago Race Riots.
Abe Lincoln Grows Up
ISBN: 0156026155 Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. 1975
A beautifully told story of young Abraham Lincoln’s coming-of-age
Drawn from the early chapters of Carl Sandburg’s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years, this is the story of Abraham Lincoln’s childhood. Growing up poor on the family farm, Abe did chores, helped his father cut down trees, and expertly skinned animals and cured hides. As a young man, he became an avid reader. When he witnessed a slave auction while on a flatboat trip down the Mississippi, he was forever changed—and so was the future of America. This is the remarkable story of Lincoln’s youth, early America, and the pioneer life that shaped one of our country’s greatest presidents.
