It's summertime; carefree barefoot days of mischief and fun. Steamboats glide the mighty Mississippi, churning river waters in an endless splash and spill. The captain gives a sign. Whistles blare their hearty hoot. Packets bulge full of the goods: tales you wouldn't believe....

Meet Sam Clemens, the young printer's devil, who would soon be known the world over as writer Mark Twain. Travel his America: from his boyhood hometown in Hannibal, Missouri, to the riverboat manse of a home he built for his own children in Hartford, Connecticut. Meet the real Tom and Becky, go spelunking in the infamous cave, pound trails west with the Pony Express, and laugh at the croaks and jokes of that Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.

Recorded on location in Hannibal and Hartford, this audio is perfect for BackPax trailblazers (kids) age 8 and older.

    " I was expecting to find curmudgeonly skepticism but I was saddened and disappointed to learn that Sam Clemens was quite antisemitic. "

    " Mark Twain is the greatest. His sharp wit, brutal cynicism and sardonic social commentary all come to play in this collection of Twain's "religious" writings. Biblical interpretations and re-telling of classic Christian tales in a way only Twain could do it. Highly recommended is the essay "Letters from the Earth". Jesus himself would laugh at this. "

    " Very witty. If you like satire, this book is for you. Curious would probably be the best word to describe it. "

    " No wonder he didn't want this published during his lifetime. "
