Mark Twain is ever full of surprises, one of which is the great amount of time he spent at sea. Readers not already familiar with his extensive travel history will discover in this book that in addition to his years on Mississippi steamboats, Mark Twain undertook scores of sea voyages. His lively accounts of both those and imaginary voyages are collected in this handy volume, which should find a welcome place alongside books about his steamboating days.
