Long before there were movies about the Wild West, Twain’s writing captured its spirit and its sense of open opportunities, wild hopes, lawlessness, and often danger, too.


Mark Twain wrote the story of young America as the country roared into action, from sea to shining sea.  From the big cities of the east to the wilds of the west, his words made it all come alive.

Look inside

We know Mark Twain as the creator of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, but it was so nearly not to be. As a boy, Twain lived by the banks of the Mississippi and dreamed of becoming a riverboat pilot, steering ships safely the length of America. When the Civil War brought his career to an end he picked up a pen instead. And the rest, as they say, was history.

If you want to teach your children about the pioneering spirit that made America, this is the book for you.
