Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 - April 21, 1910), better known by the pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. Twain is most noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Compiled and performed by James Carroll Jordan, this is an entertaining take on Mark Twain's tales of his travels around the world relating to women he has observed and met. Jordan presents the stories much as Mark Twain may have done himself in his days on the lecture circuit in the 19th century.

    " I didn't read this whole book because I got bored with it. There is a lot of interesting information, and Mark Twain can be humorous, but he is also ver wordy...and sometimes doesn't write in complete sentences... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 4/13/2011

    " A good lesson in river navigation and some history of the Mississippi, but, with the exception of a few anecdotal stories, was easy to put down. "

    " The first third of the book was great. The stories about the Mississippi river pilots were very interesting. The second two thirds were verry slow. There were a few interesting side stories, but the rest was boring. I guess if you lived in some of areas mentioned it would be of interest. "

    " It's Twain, so sometime's it's hilarious and insightful and all of the things that make him such a big name. Then there are the times he rambles at length about steamboats, and I just can't begin to care. So, call it really uneven.

    " Good book. This book is a combination of stories about the midwest and people who lived along the Mississippi River and his experience as a steamboat captain. "

    " I am now a big Mark Twain fan. He gets me laughing. Also he was on the Mississippi at the same time as one of my ancestors. "

    " I read this while actually travelling on the Mississippi. Twain is marvelous. "

    " Twain's a consummate storyteller but at some points a bit boring. A good lazy summer book regardless. "

About the Author
Author Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
