    He was one of history's greatest conquerors, and in his day, his very name caused terror. His forces burned great cities to the ground, and killed on a scale that can only be called "genocide." But there was also another side to Genghis Khan, one that most people have never considered. He modernized the laws and customs of his people and unified much of Eurasia, spreading the trade and cultural influence of the Silk Road. For these accomplishments he is still celebrated as the greatest hero of the Mongolians.

    In this revealing, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Twain's extraordinary life, expertly separating fact from fiction, biography from legend. Here we see how Twain rose from an impoverished boyhood on the Mississippi to become one of the nation's most famous men, using the very material of that impoverished boyhood to propel his rise. But Twain's life also had more than its share of tragedy, and his story is also one of failure, bankruptcy, and grievous loss.
