Life On the Mississippi by Mark Twain


Life on the Mississippi provided the inspiration for Mark Twain's masterpiece, Huckleberry Finn, and earned the author his first recognition as a serious writer.Raised in the river town of Hannibal, Missouri, Mark Twain dreamed of becoming a river pilot. In the first half of Life on the Mississippi, Twain describes his eventual apprenticeship as a river pilot and the vitality of life in the steamboat era. In the second half of the book, Twain records his return after the Civil War and the railroads had stripped the river of its romance.
