SUMMARY

Life on the Mississippi is no ordinary guided tour, for every page is expressive of the structure, style, and high humor that is the very essence of Twain. Spiced with Twain's pungent observations and commentaries on the culture and society of the great river valley, this book is a wonderful collection of lively anecdotes, tall tales, and character sketches; historical facts and information; and reminiscences of the author's boyhood and his adventures as a steamboat pilot. In its composition and substance, Life on the Mississippi is intricately related to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In his introduction, James M. Cox suggests that in writing this travelogue Twain discovered the truths that form the heart of the odyssey depicted in that masterpiece. Book jacket.Twain, Mark is the author of 'Life on the Mississippi ', published 1985 under ISBN 9780140390506 and ISBN 0140390502.
