    Mark Twain is at his irreverent best with this hilarious parody of the 19th-century mystery. The tale begins with the murder of Flint Buckner and a heinous crime against a young woman. A man with special gifts - no less a personage than Sherlock Holmes! - enters the scene to solve the mystery and avenge the lady. He matches wits with an improbable villain, Archy Stillman, while Ham Sandwich and Wells Fargo look on, and almost gets himself lynched in the process.

    There's no one quite like Mark Twain for finding humor in the most improbable situations - and these 10 stories prove it. He sets the tone in "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," and completely hooks the reader in long before reaching the snowbound railway train in "Cannibalism in the Cars."

    There's no one quite like Mark Twain for poking irreverent fun at everything - and he's at it again with this collection of essays, speeches, letters, and personal accounts. Twain begins, in "Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses", by listing 18 of them and going on to debunk the Pathfinder's woodsmanship. "Punch-Brother-Punch" recounts how a memorable jingle nearly drives the author over the edge, and in "An Author's Soldiering" we learn how Twain saved the Union.
