Kurzbeschreibung

* Beautifully illustrated with delightful illustrations from early editions, this brilliant semi-autobiographical work is the tale of Mark Twain's early adventures through the Wild West, Roughing It is a wonderfully humorous take on his experiences as a gold and silver prospector; his speculation in real estate; and the many intriguing characters he came across. He would later achieve renown as the author of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Just as gripping today as it was when first published well over a century ago, Roughing It continues to enjoy huge popularity around the world.

* This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is enhanced with images carefully selected by our team of professional editors.

Synopsis

This work, first published in 1872, marks a crucial phase in the author's life and career. It recounts Twain's experiences in the Territory of Nevada, recalling the boisterous days on the frontier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The undisturbed soul of Mark Twain 23. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is better than the equivelent of sending Walter Kronkite to the Wild West to investigate it's doings. Mark Twain, ever the great poet/humorist, embarks into the real world of the West with as much excitement and curiosity as you or I would have via an Overland Stagecoach. While he is at this occupation, he develops a dozen more, including propecting and newpaper reporting, being destitute, and being fabulously rich. Everywhere his gaze is turned is carefully recorded and sent 'back-home' to you and I as though it were a personal letter through the post! His humor and insight is actually the finest of his entire career; the personal feeling, yearning, passion, and pathos of his descriptions are more poetic than the bards of all time. On his journey from Springfield, Missouri, to find out what life will become--and with WHAT, and IN what--he accompanies his brother Orion, just appointed secretary to the Governor of the Nevada territories by President Lincoln, to conveniently become the secretary's secretary. An occupation, predictably short-lived. Upon arrival young Sam Clemens, a recent riverboat pilot turned Confederate Soldier gone AWOL is as set free as a snake from a cardboard box. No one on earth could have taken advantage of the wild possibilities that beckoned from the new frontier better than Sam Clemens. Sam was as a man gone there intentionally in a time machine and was exultant to begin his plans---and coming-up with them on his arrival. He wrote home that he would never return to Missouri until he had become a rich man, and THAT from the silver mines that peppered the entire mountain ranges of Nevada of that day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Passel o' Lies 4. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book has more lies in it than any book except the Bible, which is longer. For that reason (and many others) it is one of the best descriptions of the old West that has ever been written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Real wisdom and humor from a real American 14. September 2005
Von W. Pierce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading piles of books about politics, the Bush Administrations, the collapse of the US dollar, the collapse of the US.... I needed to regain my sanity. These books are not allowed in my bedroom. Instead I have Mark Twain's "Roughing It" beside my bed and am starting to recover.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Satyricon of the West 21. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Before Clint Eastwood tore apart the mythic West in Unforgiven, Mark Twain's travelogue/novel portrayed the West as a humorous, amorally violent, rapacious, and racist land of opportunity, not all of it good. Most people would characterize the West like that now: testament to the staying power of Twain's prose. The "Genuine Mexican Plug" and "Lost in the Snow" episodes are magnificient. Roughing It also acts as a satirical outrider for Huck Finn. If you want the feel of a stage-coach, read the first section whenever you travel, just as George Plimpton does in his Introduction

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mildly entertaining however long 16. Januar 2008
Von buckbuckmoose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is not one that you will sit down and read over a weekend. It is a slow reader, however the chapters are relativly short. There is typical Mark Twain humor, which I love. I wish there was more of his wit in the book. Not my favorite book by him, but for the love of the author, I read on!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dont Recomend to people with short attention span 7. Januar 2014
Von Christian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In this story Mark Twain a news reporter for the San Fransisco Morning call gives readers a story about his travels around the world. It is set around the time of the California Gold Rush tells about the many adventures of Sam Clems Aka Mark Twain. The books starts in Nevada where mark and his brother. newly appointed secretary of the Nevada territory. The new take a stagecoach from Missouri to Carson city.
In the story it tells bout the many adventures of Mark Twain. The book is amazingly long and at some parts very boring. But the book is not all bad in some parts its pretty funny in how he tells the story. I do not recommend this book if your are under the age of 17 because it is a bit slow in most parts.
