Publisher's Summary

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. He found adventure prospecting for silver in Nevada, navigating steamboats down the Mississippi, and making people laugh around the world. But Twain also had a serious streak and decried racism and injustice. His fascinating life is captured candidly in this enjoyable biography.

Decidedly A Children's Book...

This short bio of Twain would be appropriate for children aged 10-12, and anyone with much knowledge of American literature will find no surprises here, but it does have good information for the total neophyte and it's written in a style that will be attractive to most preteens.
