'I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.' - Mark Twain In these extraordinary stories Mark Twain takes us from the sleepy banks of the Mississippi, through frontier towns, and across the deserted gold plains of California. We encounter his countryfolk in all their bizarre variety: a cannibalistic ex-senator, a compulsive gambler, phoney travelling salesmen, and a team of bumbling detectives. The breadth, skill, and comic ingenuity of these tales reminds us why Mark Twain is truly the 'father of American literature'.
