    DescriptionThis comic narrative is based on Mark Twain's six years of "variegated vagabondising" in the American West at the height of silver-mining fever. The text reprinted here is identical with that first published in 1993 in the California Press "Works of Mark Twain", approved by the Centre for Scholarly Editions and awarded the 1993-94 Modern Language Association Prize for a Distinguished Scholarly Edition. It includes all of the original illustrations. Mark Twain's narrative has been expertly annotated to supply the essential historical context (technical apparatus and the introduction are available only in the "Works" volume). This is certain to be the standard edition of "Roughing It" for scholars, students, and general readers.

    Review quote
    "An intellectually powerful 'Introduction' . . . This book is a major achievement. . . . If we are talking about a monument to highest purposes of scholarship mingled with a direct responsibility to a wider audience, this text passes the test. . . . truly national monuments of ideas are being created here. . . . These works are active in the way that passive stone will never be. It is an appropriate transition for a country that sees itself in a revolutionary new age of information and information science to make our new monuments monuments to ideas."--David E. E. Sloane, "Essays in Arts and Sciences
