Sintesi dell'editore

"To Calvin H. Higbie, of California, an honest man, a genial comrade and a steadfast friend," this book is inscribed by the author, "in memory of the curious time when we two were millionaires for ten days." So the witty Mark Twain dedicates his second travelogue and charming SEMI-sequel to The Innocents Abroad.

Listeners to Roughing It will find themselves laughing along with the author, as the Wild West gets a little bit wilder in this charming edition of Twain’s American adventures, mishaps and musings.

Wonderful wit

Twain is a master of throwaway lines, and there are so many here. It is read with intelligence and a very good insight into Twain's language.

The story is about travelling by stage from Missouri to Nevada through perilous deserts inhabited by native Americans and alsorts of bad and good guys. Twain's brilliant observation and ability to describe everything that happens to them with humour and consummate language skills is enhanced by Robin Field's excellent reading. Can't praise this book enough.
