A wonderful collection of four masterful tales by Mark Twain - America's favorite author. Filled with all the raw humanity with which Twain wrote, the stories include The Professor's Yarn, about a riverboat gambler's attempt to swindle a pompous cattleman; The California Tale, which tells of the undying devotion a lonely pioneer feels for his beautiful wife; A Dying Man's Confession, a dark tale of renegade soldiers, murder, and revenge; and The Man Who Put Up At Gadsby's, a hilarious story of a haughty teacher seeking to secure a position as postmaster.

    " Mark Twain, well-known for Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, is perhaps less well-known by the general populace for his witty and biting commentaries on human nature and society. The Mysterious Stranger is just such a story. Set in 17th century Austria, The Mysterious Stranger tells the story of three teenage boys who encounter a boy named Philip Traum, aka Satan (not THE Satan, Philip claims, but his nephew). Philip is an angel and lacks what he terms "The Moral Sense." Which makes for some interesting adventures in a heavily Catholic community. Twain really forces the reader to question commonly held ideas about religion and what it means to be a human being. A great moral and philosophical work. "

    " A novelette that is very different from Twain's more popular works. Twain plays with some philosophical and religious views that makes for some entertaining dark humor. "

    " A nice collection of four short stories by Mark Twain. The first two, The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and The 1,000,000 Pound Bank-Note, are more on the humorous side, while the last two, The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg and The Mysterious Stranger, focus more on human nature and its faults. Of the four, The Mysterious Stranger stands out as my favorite. I found it interesting that even though Satan causes many to die, he makes some really good points about how we treat each other. The discussion with Theodor after the lady is hanged (pg. 110-111) was particularly relevant. "

    " Who am I to judge Twain? It reminded me how Twain's style will never grow old. This novella aptly combines he's talent for wit and drama. I'm recommending it to all my friends. "
