Staff Reviews

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.

Mark Twain remains America's most well-known satirist and this is just one of his forgotten classics; it may not be as famous as Huckleberry Finn or Tom Sawyer, but it's still worth a read for any student of literature or anyone just interested in a good story from a timeless author.
