One of my favorite Twain books. He describes "reading the river" so well.

Masterful evocation of times gone, and places, vanished. Some of the tales tend to have "color added" in the Twain tradition, but they are invariably interesting. Twain's warnings of the futility of taming the mighty river will sound surprisingly familiar in light of the events of 2011.

I found this book to be hard going at first but, once I got into the story I found it very interesting and enjoyable.

It just wasn't my cup of tea. Very dry reading, especially given my idea of Mark Twain. This was the first of his books I tried to read.
