Six of the best-loved Mark Twain classics in a beautiful hardback format.
Adventurer and author Mark Twain was born in Missouri, USA, under the name of Samuel. He worked as a river pilot's apprentice for several years, whereupon he picked up his pseudonym before moving on to become a newspaper reporter. His first short story was published in The New York Saturday Press in 1865 and his full books followed to great success. Mark Twain passed away on April 21, 1910, but has a following still today. His childhood home is open to the public as a museum in Hannibal, and Calavaras County in California holds the Calavaras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee every third weekend in May.
