    Before he achieved fame with The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain honed his talent writing about new places, people and experiences. In the 68 letters, newspaper articles and lectures collected here, he takes us from the Mississippi to the Holy Land, India and Berlin, which he mischievously dubbed 'the Chicago of Europe'. These dispatches, some published here for the first time, confirm that Twain's wit, insight and human sympathy still hit the mark more than a century later. American cut pages.
