Lincoln's Doctor's Dog (Paperback)
The most enduring mystery of the Lincoln Administration concerns a certain dog....
To this day no one really knows much about the dog; his pedigree, his peculiarities of perception, his role in certain historic events, who he really belonged to even. But his presence in the White House remains one of the biggest mysteries of Abraham Lincoln's administration.
Lincoln's Doctor's Dog is a fanciful romp through history with Honest Abe, his knowing four-legged sidekick Cooper and a colorful cast of characters who run the gamut from Abner Doubleday to Ulysses S. Grant. A comic tour de farce by James O. Long, a veteran newspaperman with a keen sense of satire, an ear for brisk dialogue and an eye for shady politicians - and not just from yesteryear, if you catch his drift.
