Publisher's Summary

We're all familiar with Mark Twain or Mr. Samuel Clemens, his given name, but we may not be as familiar with some of his tall tales and short stories. This book is a compilation of some of the infamous author's rare, yet utterly humorous work. Inside, you'll hear and feel the nuances of a man, deeply rooted in his Missouri way of life, yet remarkably worldly in his vast knowledge and impeccable timing and gift of gab.

This collection is sure to delight and amuse you, and open up a whole new world to you by giving you personal insight into a man, many times fabled, but more often than not touted as a true American legend. These seven tall tales and short stories are sure to please. The stories found in this book include:

"To Raise Poultry"

"Disgraceful Persecution of a Boy"

"The Judge's 'Spirited Women'"

"Science vs. Luck"

"Mr. Bloke's Item"

"After-Dinner Speech"

"The Siamese Twins"
