A local lawyer has published two books about Abraham Lincoln and his time practicing law in central Illinois.
 
Guy Fraker indicates his book, A Guide to Lincoln's Eighth Judicial Circuit, gives readers an interactive view at the places Lincoln spent time at during his time in central Illinois.
 
 
The last couple decades, Fraker has intensified his interest in Abraham Lincoln, an interest that dates back to an early visit to Salem, Illinois.
 
 
Fraker learned a lot about Lincoln and says he came away with a viewpoint that is not all that flattering. He explains he admires Lincoln more but liked him less after his research.
 
 
Fraker says one book does not necessarily lead to the other, rather it is two different viewpoints of his career. He explains he visited lots of people and places he knew and used his perspective to guide him. 
 
He'll be signing his book at the Candle Light Tours from 5 pm to 8 pm this Friday night at the CH Moore Homestead, where his books will be available for purchase.
 
Having Fraker at the Homestead is quite an honor for them as he has been a guest speaker at Harvard University and a premier Lincoln event in Gettysburg, PA.
