Publisher's Summary

It's summertime; carefree barefoot days of mischief and fun. Steamboats glide the mighty Mississippi, churning river waters in an endless splash and spill. The captain gives a sign. Whistles blare their hearty hoot. Packets bulge full of the goods: tales you wouldn't believe....

Meet Sam Clemens, the young "printer's devil", who would soon be known the world over as writer Mark Twain. Travel "his" America: from his boyhood hometown in Hannibal, Missouri, to the riverboat manse of a home he built for his own children in Hartford, Connecticut. Meet the "real" Tom and Becky, go spelunking in the infamous cave, pound trails west with the Pony Express, and laugh at the croaks and jokes of that "Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".

Recorded on location in Hannibal and Hartford, this audio is perfect for BackPax trailblazers (kids) age 8 and older.
