Mark Twain: The Innocents Abroad, Roughing It

Edited by Guy Cardwell

“Mark Twain helped to devise the personal style of American travel writing. Dry guidebook facts were not for him. He could not help turning everything he saw into literature when he trained his keen eye on foreign people and places. No matter what unusual customs he saw or monuments he climbed, he remained Mark Twain—a wised-up observer disguised as a wide-eyed innocent… Much of the European scene he describes remains unchanged; all of it is a delight to revisit with Twain in the pilot house.” — New York Times
