Summary Excerpt Comments

In a stranger-than-fiction odyssey, a homeless pig reveals her struggles for survival in a heartland hamlet which was once Abraham Lincoln's last stop during his days as a circuit-riding lawyer. Dubbed "...a rare glimpse into Abraham Lincoln's lighter side..." by acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, "The Big Squeal" introduces a real-life, orphan pig who encounters Lincoln's likenesses all over the Town Square. Looming large is a towering bronze statue showing an amused Lincoln peering at a piglet --immortalizing Abe's request for a "writ of quietus" to calm noisy village pigs living under the rustic 1840s courthouse. Vividly paralleling the adventure are full-color illustrations celebrating the hamlet's 19th Century architecture, the people who reside there and the heart-warming transformation of a pig from rural to city life.
