BiographyHistory

The 'distinguished novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist, and literary critic' Mark Twain 'ranks among the great figures of American literature'. During the mid-1890s, Twain commenced a series of successful lecture tours in Canada, Australia, India, and South Africa. 'Always an engaging speaker, Twain would regale and cajole audiences with tall tales, amusing anecdotes, and barbed comments. After completing the tour, he published his observations' as Following the Equator: A Journey around the World (1897). (Source: Contemporary Authors Online)
