Publisher's Summary

Samuel Langhorne Clemens was born in 1835 and is far better known by his pen name: Mark Twain. An American author and humorist of the first order, he is perhaps most famous for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the backdrop for these great novels. During his lifetime, he was apprenticed to a printer, worked as a typesetter, and eventually became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River. Later, he headed west with his brother, Orion, to make his fortune, where he failed at gold mining, and instead turned to journalism and found his place in the world as a writer of humorous stories.

The short stories told here showcase Twain’s true-calling. His wit and humour sparkle from every word; his mastery of the craft is evident with every phase and punctured target. Enjoyable and entertaining from start to finish, these stories are read for you by Stuart Milligan.
