Meet the Author

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was born Samuel Langhorn Clemens, and grew up in the vicinity of the Mississippi River, whose culture he would immortalize in both fiction and non-fiction. He worked as a printer's apprentice and a riverboat pilot before turning full time to writing. His first book, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and Other Sketches (1867), collected a number of humorous but affectionate tales of rustics and rogues who lived along the Mississippi. Over the next forty years, Twain produced a formidable body of work that included the satirical travelogue The Innocents Abroad (1869), the colorful memoir Life on the Mississippi (1883), and numerous sketches, short stories, and essays. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), and Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894) are considered signature novels of the American experience in the nineteenth century. Twain also wrote the historical fantasies The Prince and the Pauper (1881) and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889).
