The romantic heyday of steamboats on the Mississippi is recalled in a characteristically nostalgic mixture of journalism and autobiography by Mark Twain. He describes people and places with humour, but writes with great respect of the river itself.
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.
