Four classic tales from the Grandfather of American Humor

Re-visit an era of lemonade on the front porch and pies cooling on window sills, a time when old men swapped tales around the pickle barrel in the general store. No writer captured the rich characters and plucky exuberance of that era better than Mark Twain, river boat captain, newspaperman, and renowned humorist. As a chronicler of America's heritage of hope, faith, and resolve. Mark Twain wrote tales of playful mischief, hard-charging optimism, and hilarious come-uppance that have delighted readers for over a hundred years.
