Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs.


Beginning with the piece that made Mark Twain famous--"The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County"--and ending with his fanciful "How I Edited an Agricultural Paper," this treasure trove of an anthology, an abridgment of the 1888 original, collects seven of Twain's own pieces, in addition to tall tales, fables, and satires by fourteen of Twain's contemporaries, including Artemus Ward, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and William Dean Howells.

Chuckle through twenty-seven unabridged stories from the most popular 19th-century humorists, selected by Mr. Twain himself. No guarantees of political correctness, but sure to tickle the modern funny bone. Includes the following:

Mark Twain: "The Jumping Frog", "A Restless Night", "European Diet", "Experience of the McWilliamses and Membraneous Croup", "Our Italian Guide", "Abelard and Heloise", and "How I Edited an Agricultural Paper"
