A humorist, narrator, and social observer, Mark Twain is unsurpassed in American literature. Best known as the author of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, not unlike his protagonist, Huck, has a restless spirit.

      • content: cometabluey - Of course I didn't like this book since I don't like non-fiction but you do learn about how Mark Twain worked on a steamboat overall I really liked it but it was boring the illustrations should have color in them.
