Roughing It (Paperback)
This book is an eminently hilarious gonzo style autobiography of Mark Twain’s early days trying to make it big in the west. I don’t think any book has ever made me laugh quite as much. It lampoons absolutely everyone and every institution of the time.
This particular edition (the one I personally read), is also illustrated my a man who truly understood Twain’s humor. Highly recommended.
'Roughing It' is Mark Twain's most entertaining American travelogue, dealing with his travels through the Wild West (including Nevada, California and Salt Lake City), and as far afield as Hawaii. This is an often hilarious book from one America's master writers.
