Publisher Summary
The amazing true story of the young woman who immortalized Lincoln's face in stone.

Vinnie Ream is a small girl with a giant gift for sculpture. She starts by playing in the Wisconsin clay, but when the Civil War breaks out, her family moves to Washington D.C., setting Vinnie on a whole new path: apprentice to a famous sculptor, depictor of Congressmen and politicians, eventual sculptor of the Lincoln bust. After Lincoln's assassination, she fights doubt and prejudice for the honor of sculpting the full-size statue of Lincoln that now stands in the Capitol rotunda.
