Cliff Hangers and Down to Earth Sayings

Click Picture for Larger View40-1-34

75 pages of Down to Earth Sayings by Lincoln and Other Common Folks. Betty Canterbury was a school teacher and librarian. Over a 30-year period, she saved various "sayings" and placed them in categories. She was unable to find a publisher, so Phil Wagner agreed, only if he could put the first chapter in the book, based on the Abraham Lincoln quotes researched by Dr. Wayne Temple and illustrated by Lloyd Ostendorf. A deal was made, and Phil Wagner purchased all rights to the work and published 5,000 books. He commissioned Ostendorf to do the cover and the ink art work for the entire book. The book's back cover shows the Lincoln Heritage Trail and the three walking Lincolns.
