A Tramp AbroadBook - 1997
Twain's account of traveling in Europe, A Tramp Abroad (1880) sparkles with the author's shrewd observations and highly opinionated comments on Old World culture and showcases his unparalleled ability to integrate humorous sketches, autobiographical tidbits, and historical anecdotes in a consistently entertaining narrative. Cast in the form of a burlesque walking tour through Germany, Switzerland, France, and Italy, A Tramp Abroad includes among its adventure a voyage by raft down the Neckar and an ascent of Mont Blanc by telescope, as well as the author's attempts to study Art - a wholly imagined activity Twain "authenticated" with his own wonderfully primitive pictures included in this volume.
