Summary
Known commonly as the creator of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain's rich and varied life is eloquently revealed. The story spans Twain's career as prolific writer, Mississippi riverboat pilot, drama critic, publisher, and world traveler, while at the same time mirroring the rise of America from frontier days to world power. Over 1,000 period photos impart a sense of action and vitality as they illustrate Twain's life from his boyhood to his death
