Back cover copy

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known to most as Mark Twain, was a quintessential American writer who spent much of his life traveling around the world. Along the way, he encountered colorful characters, strange cultures, and a variety of adventures (and misadventures), all of which he incorporated into his travel writing--writing that re?ects Twain's matchless eye for irony, humor, and, now and then, tragedy.
