Naturally, Twain’s writings were influenced by his experience. He had many capacities and talents, including steamboat pilot, writer, lecturer, essayist, entrepreneur, traveler and more.

It may be that his lecturing tours influenced the style of the pieces we include here, because we think they are wonderfully suited to audio presentation. To demonstrate our point we have recorded selected pieces for you.
