Overview

*Illustrated with dozens of pictures of the original illustrations, Twain, his life and work.
*Includes Table of Contents

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist best known for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel."

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer and also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which became very popular and brought nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker, becoming a national celebrity during his day. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he became a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress was a travel book that depicted an excursion through Europe and the Middle East with other American travelers in the 19th century. Although the book reads like a serious travel guide of places like Italy, Syria, and the Holy Land, the book was littered with Twain’s trademark humor, and it was the best selling work during Twain’s lifetime.

This edition of Innocents Abroad is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of the famous writer and the story’s original illustrations.

    Tourists Are Forever

    Twain's adventures, from the cruise ship to the Holy Land are a fun read. He's experienced the SAME TOURIST TRAPS we have.

    I started reading this book last night and am having trouble put

    I started reading this book last night and am having trouble putting it down. It is my first Mark Twain
    experience, and he is funny! I am an avid cruiser, and this book captures some of the same feelings
    which we experience on the modern ships today. Great writing! This edition is nicely done with no errors, and nice illustrations.

    Poor

    I tried to read this one, but the character recognition software did an awful job converting the text. I ended up buying another verson for $.99. Really enjoyed the book once I was able to read it
