"All jaw, vanity, bombast, and ignorance."
While justly famous for "Huck Finn" and "Tom Sawyer," the prolific Mark Twain also wrote a good deal of non-fiction, much of it related to work and travel. in "The Innocents Abroad," he traveled with a tour to the Holy Land and gave his sardonic observations, while in "Life on the Mississippi," he related his experiences of working on a riverboat. "Roughing It" follows him on his adventures in the West, working as a reporter, mining for gold, and drifting around the country (including Hawaii). Twain's voice-flinty, ironic, droll, slightly disgusted-is one of the greatest in American literature and is on fine display here. Like a lot of iconic American writers, he can find a lot to love and a lot to despise about the land and its people.
