Gloria Bennett, a Lanphier High School junior, and her companions set off to attend the State Student Council Convention in Chicago. Their mode of transportation is the new streamliner, the Abraham Lincoln. They meet adventure head-on when Gloria, pushed off the steps of the streamliner into the midst of a prison outbreak, is abandoned on the Illinois prairie as the Abraham Lincoln rifles through the night. The intrigue continues in Chicago and reaches its climax when the Abraham Lincoln pulls into the Springfield station the next day. Gloria and friends Bonnie, David, and Jim help FBI Agent Williams solve the mystery of the kidnapped child and the escaped convict. The train, an object of interest itself, affords the total happenings of day and night sounds, of movement over the tracks, and of swaying and jostling G. B. Miller’s Mayhem on the Abraham Lincoln is the first book of the Lincoln series based on the adventures of Gloria Bennett of Springfield, Illinois. An exciting read! A teacher’s delight, the book is a great vocabulary builder, having a page at the end of each chapter with a word, phonetic pronunciation, and brief definition. Also, it contains a ten-question quiz for each chapter, four projects, and five literary terms.
