Life on the Mississippi
This is Twain's memoir of his youthful years as a cub pilot on a steamboat on 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, this is another American classic.
