The Innocents Abroad

6.25

The Innocents Abroad is one of the most beloved of Mark Twain’s works, an account of his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land in 1867.

Backed by a newspaper, the young Mr. Twain joined one of the "Tours of the Holy Land" that were popular at the time, and sent back regular reports to his paper.

Soon, his acid pen and eye for hypocrisy were in full force. His accounts were so amusing and provocative they made him an international star for the rest of his life.

The Innocents Abroad went on to become the best selling of Twain's works during his lifetime, as well as one of the best-selling travel books of all time.

MARK TWAIN (1835-1910) Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. Author of numerous essays, short stories, and novels, including The Prince and the Pauper, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, hailed by Ernest Hemingway as “the Great American Novel.”
