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 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.

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

Mark Twain's account of his journey on a cruise ship to the Holy Land, which created quite a few hard feelings at the time it was released. He gleefully skewers not only the crassness of the American tourists, but also finds little to like about the locals in the places he visits, creating a typical consternation among those who would be politically correct. A pleasant read, but not with quite as much of the satiric wit that characterized most of his later works.
