So Mark Twain acclaims his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land in June 1867. His adventures produced The Innocents Abroad, a book so funny and provocative it made him an international star for the rest of his life. He was making his first responses to the Old World - to Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Constantinople, Sebastopol, Balaklava, Damascus, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem.

A must for todays European traveler. Mark Twain is such a good story teller that one feels like they are making a visit to Europe and the Holy Land. You find yourself exploring countries without the benefit of today's modes of transportation and conviences.
Mark Twain's humorous, satirical commentary on people and their adventures through life are as pure in Innocent's Abroad as they are in his most famous books. Through this story, Twain set the stage, so to speak, for the American tourist abroad. A must read for anyone who is a fan of Mark Twain and ...
