Twain waxed witty and wise in his novels, travel sketches, short stories, essays, and speeches. Culled from his extensive body of work, this collection captures most of the deliciously on-target turns of phrase that have made Twain one of America's best and favorite humorists. Includes selections from Roughing It, Life on the Mississippi, The Gilded Age, Tom Sawyer Abroad, Innocents Abroad, Pudd'nhead Wilson, Following the Equator, and The Prince and the Pauper, among others. B&W illus. 84pp.
