This is a travelogue written by Mark Twain. He spent about 6 years traveling from Missouri to Nevada to California to Hawaii and back home. He talks about the Mormon religion, silver mining, stock swindles, the west, indians, the gold rush in California, and Hawaii. He talks about the strange characters he met along the way. The best part is his description of the Book of Mormon. His cynical take on religion is still fresh today. The narration was done by Norman Dietz, who is a great narrator.
