This is the type of story that you can't put down, not because of the action, but because of the dialogue. I love having Sam Clemens as a character, i love the history, I love the geography. Altogether a great romp!

fun period piece, featuring characters from the world of Samuel Clemens...told through the eyes of his secretary, Mr. Cabot, as he accompanies the Twain entourage on a lecture tour out west.
