Description
We know Mark Twain today as the author of classics like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, but in his own time Twain—born Samuel Langhorne Clemens—was a controversial satirist and public figure who traveled the world and helped reunite post–Civil War America with his tall tales, witty anecdotes, and insightful novels and stories. This commemorative album is an illustrated tribute to Twain's life and career, with vintage photos, popular and fine art prints, caricatures, political cartoons, maps, and ephemera. Former Library of Congress Prints and Photographs curator Harry Katz portrays Twain in a lively narrative, with excerpts from his writings.

"Mark Twain's America reminds us why George Bernard Shaw called Twain 'America's Voltaire.' The man from Hannibal was a powerful voice for social change who wrote and spoke against the corruption he saw in our government, a champion of the values he learned as a child on the Missouri frontier."—Hal Holbrook
