As a young man, the celebrated author of "Huckleberry Finn," Tom Sawyer, and other classics spent the mid-1860s in California. In this collection of essays, newspaper articles, fiction, speeches, and letters, Twain presents his notoriously unconventional views on a state booming in the wake of the gold rush. His wry humor and irreverent social commentary illuminate everything from fashion, politics, and art to earthquakes, religion, and urban crime. Drawn from hard-to-find sources as well as his ever-popular books, "Gold Miners" and "Guttersnipes: Tales of California" by Mark Twain is a fresh and distinctive assortment by one of America's favorite authors.
