Life on the Mississippi Summary


Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain

The spirit of the Mississippi flows through all Mark Twain's best work and here the romantic heyday of the steamboat is recalled in a characteristically nostalgic mixture of journalism and autobiography. He describes people and places with affection and humour, but of the Mississippi itself, on which he was once a cub pilot travelling between New Orleans and St Louis, he writes with repect and loving devotion.
