Read and Discuss Roughing It by Mark Twain

Roughing It by Mark Twain (1872) is a semi-autobiographical account of his six years traveling in the West, including Nevada and San Francisco. Twain’s satiric humor and imagination freely inspire his memory of these adventures.

“In other days I had considered it a good, a very good, anecdote, but there was a dismal plausibility about it, here, that took all the humor out of it.”
