Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad


Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad


A Tramp Abroad is one of the most beloved of Mark Twain’s works.

The great writer is here doing what he is best at, telling stories in full color and hilarious detail, as he and a (fictional) friend named Harris, tramp up and down mountains and across Europe in the 1800’s.

Based on his travels in Europe from April 1878 to August 1879, Twain blends autobiography and fiction, facts and tall tales.

His dissections of Old World customs, Wagnerian opera, and the German language are interwoven with American reminiscences involving among other things, blue jays and skeletons.

A natural gadfly, Mark Twain’s work is always entertaining.

—Jose Infante
