    However, it Mark Twain book during his time here that he heard the bartender of the Angels Hotel in Angels Camp share an incredulous story about a frog-jumping contest. Through it all, Twain skillfully weaves a truly eccentric supporting cast — one that includes David Wilson, a man who finds great joy in collecting fingerprints. Three years later his elder brother, Orion, bought the Hannibal Journal, and Twain began working for him as a typesetter. A cholera epidemic a few years later killed at least 24 people, a substantial number for a small town. He lost the bulk of his book profits, as well as a substantial portion of his wife's inheritance.

    At mid-career, he combined rich humor, sturdy narrative, and social criticism in Huckleberry Finn. Lengthy and rather slow-paced, Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc is notable for its muted humor — a striking departure from the work that Twain can so reliably be expected to produce. The story proves extremely popular and raises Twain's profile as a writer. Katz picked 10 of Twain's best books. Where did Mark Twain grow up?

    It Mark Twain book coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. However, another popular theory holds that he earned the nickname in a bar. Henry had been training to become a steamboat pilot, at Twain's encouragement. By this time, Twain had lived through the gold rush, the American promise of manifest destiny, the Civil War, the hopeful dawn of Reconstruction and its eventual collapse, the onset of the American Indian Wars, bankruptcy, adventures around the globe too many to count — all testimony to a life loved well. You closed a most eloquent description, by which you had keyed your audience up to a pitch of the intensest interest, with a piece of atrocious anti-climax which nullified all the really fine effect you had produced.

Most critics call it the Great American Novel.

The Langdon family plot is marked by a foot monument two fathoms, or "mark twain" placed there by his surviving daughter Clara. Twain really, really liked cats—so much so that he had 19 of them at one time.

It was on this trip that he met fellow passenger Charles Langdon, who showed him a picture of his sister Olivia. His scheduled lecture in HonoluluHawaii had to be canceled due to a cholera epidemic.

Twain opted for the latter, joining the Confederate Army in June but serving for only a couple of weeks until his volunteer unit disbanded. Make no mistake: this is Twain at his most cynical, defiant, intelligent, belligerent, and cutting.
