The Boy Settlers

Book cover
Noah Brooks (1830-1903) was a journalist and editor who worked for newspapers in Sacramento, San Francisco, Newark, and New York, and authored a major biography of Abraham Lincoln based on close personal observation. He moved to Dixon, Illinois in 1856, where he became involved in the first Republican campaign for President (John Fremont). During the campaign, he became friends with Lincoln. Brooks moved to Kansas in 1857 as a "free state" settler, but returned to Illinois about a year later, then moved to California in 1859. In 1862 he moved to Washington, D.C. to cover the Lincoln administration for the Sacramento Daily Union. Brooks' 258 Washington dispatches for the Sacramento Daily Union were published under the name "Castine". In 1895, Brooks published his biography of Lincoln, Washington in Lincoln's Time, based on his Castine articles, as well as personal observations and interviews. In 1901, Brooks published The Story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition based largely on the Nicholas Biddle history of the Expedition. His other works include: The Boy Emigrants (1877), The Fairport Nine (1880) and The Boy Settlers: A Story of Early Times in Kansas (1891).
