Little Abe hurried home as fast as his feet could carry him. Perhaps if he had worn stockings and shoes like yours he could have run faster. But, instead, he wore deerskin leggings and clumsy moccasins of bear skin that his mother had made for him. Such a funny little figure as he was, hurrying along across the rough fields! His suit was made of war homespun cloth. His cap was made of coonskin, and the tail of the coon hung behind him, like a furry tassel. But if you could have looked into the honest, twink- ling blue eyes of this little lad of long ago, you would have liked him at once. In one hand little Abe held something very precious. It was only a book, but little Abe thought more of that book than he would have thought of gold or precious stones. You cannot know just what that book meant to little Abe, unless you are very fond of reading. Think how it would be to see no books except two or three old ones that you had read over and over until you knew them by heart!
