The book features travel yarns that only this best-loved author could spin. With a sharp eye and an even sharper wit, Twain is the quintessential tour guide of the 19th Century. Dispatches showcasing his caustic, gimlet-eyed humour, will take readers on a trot around the globe, from Hawaii to the Holy Land to Berlin (known as 'Europe's Chicago'). The delicious assemblage of 68 tales features Twain's trademark style - a combination of breezy insouciance and droll barbarism - at its very best.
