Abstract:

Traces Twain's meteoric rise from his humble birth in Florida, Missouri, to his prosperous 50th birthday in Hartford, Connecticut, when he was the nation's best-selling author. It follows young Sam Clemens to the small Mississippi River town of Hannibal, where he would store up a lifetime's worth of memories that would later populate his novels; his glorious time as a riverboat pilot; and his adventures in Nevada and California, where he failed as a prospector before finding his calling - and adopting his new pen name - as a reporter.
