Overview

Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in 1835. He gained national attention as a humourist in 1865 with the publication of "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," but was acknowledged as a great writer by the literary establishment with The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn (1885). In 1880, Twain began promoting and financing the ill-fated Paige typesetter, an invention designed to make the printing process fully automatic. At the height of his naively optimistic involvement in the technological "wonder" that nearly drove him to bankruptcy, he published his satire, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889). Plagued by personal tragedy and financial failure, Mark Twain spent the last years of his life in gloom and exasperation, writing fables about "the damned human race."

    A Great Journey Around the Globe

    This is really a great book, with incredible descriptions and interesting stories. I would give it five, but, it's kind of racist, you know, because it was written over 100 years ago. But if you don't mind that, it's a great read, especially if you're interested in history or exotic locations.

    I learned so much!

    When I started to read this book I did not expect to learn as much as I did about the world. Like where the term 'Thug' originated or a small lite stick like thing called a weet weet that the aboriginals of Australia could throw over 100 yards. This book is a great read.
