This vintage book contains both volumes of Mark Twain’s 1872 memoir, 'Roughing It'. Prefaced with the warning that “when he was young, he could remember it – whether it happened or not”, this memoir covers the period from 1862 to 1870. It contains details of Twain’s time in the West, where he worked as a miner and dabbled with other risky situations, including dining with a notorious gunman. This marvellous memoir is infused with the humour and wisdom that Twain is famous for, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of his seminal work. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 - 1910), better known by his pseudonym, Mark Twain, was a seminal American writer and humourist. This antiquarian book is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
