Publisher's Summary

There's no one quite like Mark Twain for finding humor in the most improbable situations - and these 10 stories prove it. He sets the tone in "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," and completely hooks the reader in long before reaching the snowbound railway train in "Cannibalism in the Cars." In addition, the collection includes "What Stumped the Bluejays," "Tom Quartz," "My Watch," "The Story of the Old Ram," "A Speech," "How I Edited an Agricultural Paper," "Journalism in Tennessee," and "The Facts in the Great Beef Contract."

Critic Reviews

"Becker's delivery of ten Twain pieces suggests the wry humor one imagines the author himself would use in reading them." (Booklist)
"Nothing American, in prose or verse, is more lyric to my ear than Twain's 'The [Notorious] Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'" (Robert Frost)

Casette to MP4 makes for hard to discern vocal

My title says it all...hard to hear...garbled. Because the origin was a casette everything seems very rushed. Glad I only paid $4.
