Description

"This book was a real delight! One of Twain's lesser known works, I had never even heard of it until a GoodReads friend recommended it to me. I'm a bit surprised The American Claimant is not more widely read, as Twain's humor and gift of farce really shine in this short but wonderfully comical and romantic little tale. The audio version narrated by Richard Henzel (who, admittedly is above- said GR friend) is superbly done. I have listened to literally hundreds of audio-books and it is rare to find a narration so well-acted and effortlessly performed. His passion for the story really brought the characters to life." --GoodReads audiobook blogger Laurel.
About The American Claimant: Young Lord Berkeley has discovered that his family's title and wealth was fraudulently obtained by previous generations, and announces to his his father, Lord Rossmore, that he intends to travel to America, there to return the Earldom of Rossmore to the rightful heir, along with all of its wealth, titles, and privilege, and to begin his life over again—"begin it right—begin it on the level of mere manhood, unassisted by factitious aids, and succeed or fail by pure merit or the want of it." As it happens, "The Rightful Earl" is an imaginative and enterprising attorney/inventor/office-seeker known as Colonel Mulberry Sellers. While less familiar than Tom Sawyer, Connecticut Yankee, or Huckleberry Finn, The American Claimant is an equally delightful tale, told with Mark Twain's trademark American humor, his biting social satire, and his well-drawn characters. Narrated by American actor and Mark Twain interpreter Richard Henzel.
