Mark Twain's exciting and dangerous sojourne in Gold-and-Silver Rush Nevada provided copy for Roughing It. A remarkably well written and illustrated bio-historical study.
Tight cloth with no previous owner's marks; clean lightly age-toned pages; a very nice copy in a bright, clean unclipped dust jacket with a few tiny though clean nicks to its edges and scuffs to its slightly faded spine.
