"This is an absolutely delightful book.... Hubbard is considered to be a regional humorist, but like all really good humorists, he speaks to everyone." —Humor: International Journal of Humor Research "Now an' then an innocent man is sent t' th' legislature." "When a feller says, 'It hain't th' money, but th' principle o' th' thing, it's the money." During the early years of this century, the fictional Abe Martin became one of the most popular cracker-barrel philosophers this country has ever known. First created for the ÂIndianapolis News by Kin Hubbard, the humorous and sometimes painful lines of Abe and his neighbors in the ÂBloom Center Weekly Sliphorn captured the imagination of Americans everywhere. This collection gathers together the very best sayings, humorous essays, cartoons, drawings, and a representative sample of Abe's "almanack."

On August 29, 1857, in the light of a three-quarter moon, James Metzger was savagely beaten by two assailants in a grove not far from his home. Two days later he died and his assailants, James Norris and William Armstrong, were arrested and charged with his murder. Norris was tried and convicted first. As William "Duff" Armstrong waited for his trial, his own father died. James Armstrong's deathbed wish was that Duff's mother, Hannah, engage the best lawyer possible to defend Duff. The best person Hannah could think of was a friend, a young lawyer from Springfield by the name of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln took the case and with that begins one of the oddest journeys Lincoln took on his trek towards immortality. What really happened? How much did the moon reveal? What did Lincoln really know? Walsh makes a strong case for viewing Honest Abe in a different light in this tale of murder and moonlight. Moonlight is a 2001 Edgar Award Nominee for Best Fact Crime.
