Publisher's Summary

America needs something to laugh about!  

In The Humour of America, 88 short stories, poems, anecdotes, and essays from the 18th and 19th century will keep you smiling and chuckling! From the likes of Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Benjamin Franklin, and many others comes humor that will help you to escape from the present troubling times. Voicing the accents of the writers and characters from the age, narrator David Gilmore will transport you to a simpler America where problems like a childlike farm sitter, an amorous handyman, and a cantankerous newspaper editor provided readers with wonderful satire.
