Travel yarns that only America's best-loved author could spin.With a sharp eye and an even sharper wit, Twain is the quintessential tour guide to 19th-century America. Dispatches showcasing his caustic, gimlet-eyed humor will take readers on a trot around the globe, from Hawaii to the Holy Land to Berlin ("Europe's Chicago").The delicious assemblage of 68 tales features Twain's trademark style--a combination of breezy insouciance and droll barbarism--at its very best.
