"The Mississippi is well worth reading about. It is not a commonplace river but on the contrary is in all ways remarkable."-- Mark Twain
0riginally published in 1883, "Life on the Mississippi" is Mark Twain's memoir of his youthful years as a cub pilot on a steamboat paddling up and down the Mississippi River. Twain used his childhood experiences growing up along the Mississippi in a number of works, including "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, " but nowhere is the river and the pilot's life more thoroughly described than in this work. Told with insight, humor, and candor, "Life on the Mississippi" is an American classic.
