Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 - 1910), also known as Mark Twain, was an American writer, publisher, lecturer and reporter. It is in this regard that this book came about. In his own words, he was not cut out to be a reporter, as he called it "fearful drudgery, soulless drudgery, and almost destitute of interest." (Gary Kamiya) Nevertheless, he was successful in imparting humor to the articles he wrote, even if he never let facts get in the way of his charming narrative.
