Life on the Mississippi - ebook/epub

Life on the Mississippi - ebook/epub
Life on the Mississippi - ebook/epub
Mark Twain
KtoCzyta.pl
Twain begins his story by telling of the Mississippi river and some of its origins. He describes several facts that gives the reader a little bit of information of its discovery. After covering the history of the river, Twain shifts to his history with the river. Growing up near the river created Twain’s dream as a child to become a steamboat pilot. Life on the Mississippi is no ordinary guided tour, for every page is expressive of the structure, style and high humour that is the very essence of Twain the writer. Spiced with Twain’s pungent observations and commentaries on the culture and society of the great river valley, the book is a wonderful collection of lively anecdotes, tall tales and character sketches; historical facts and information; and reminiscences of the author’s boyhood and experiences as a steamboat pilot.
