Life on the Mississippi Paperback - 2000

by Mark Twain

This brilliant book provides a rare glimpse into an important chapter in Mark Twain's life before he became the most popular humorist of his time. Recounting his days as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River, he offers a wide range of commentary, from picturesque views of antebellum life along the river to the harrowing experience of piloting a ship through winding channels in the dead of night.
