His verbal imagery is vivid: the flooding Carson River, the Washoe Zephyr, the fire that burned what is now Tahoe National Forest. Today, you can stand in Gold Hill or Virginia City, and get a sense of what times were like when Twain and his brother rode a stagecoach from Missouri to the Nevada Territory. Roughing It and Huckleberry Finn are his best writings. I'm a big Mark Twain fan and read this book many years ago. Probably before you were born :-). I decided to read it again and I'm glad I did.

Roughing It Mark Twain ROUGHING IT By Mark Twain PREFATORY. This book is merely a personal narrative, and not a pretentious history or a philosophical dissertation. It is a record of several years of variegated vagabondizing, and its object is rather to help the resting reader while away an idle hour than afflict him with metaphysics, or goad him with science.

Roughing It contains much of Twain's signature humor and exaggeration, When Mark Twain was a young man and not yet a published novelist, he spent seven years rousting about Nevada and California, with a six-month side trip to Hawai'i (then known as the Sandwich Islands)mixed in. What I would give for a chance to see the West when it still largely was an empty landscape, and Hawai'i with no tourists, fou-fou drinks, or fake Hula shows. Unfortunately, I was born about 125 years too late.

I loved this book. Amazing adventures of Mark Twain as a very young man in the Old West - mostly Nevada and California - plus Hawaii. Very interesting to read descriptions from 150 years ago of places I know today. And funny! That guy was hilarious.

I liked this book more than I did the better-known Life on the Mississippi.

What can you say about America’s treasured writer Mark Twain? Roughing It is a great book, an eyewitness account of pre-Civil War Nevada and the West, written with Twain’s eye for observation and detail and humorous style. His verbal imagery is vivid: the flooding Carson River, the Washoe Zephyr, the fire that burned what is now Tahoe National Forest. Today, you can stand in Gold Hill or Virginia City, and get a sense of what times were like when Twain and his brother rode a stagecoach from Missouri to the Nevada Territory. Roughing It and Huckleberry Finn are his best writings. I used to carry the paper book with me on motorcycle trips, but thanks to Kindle, have it handy almost everywhere I go, when there's cell reception.

The only Mark Twain I ever read was Huck Finn and Ton Sawyer, there was humor there but it was subtle and vague to a 9 year old boy. Along comes "Roughing It" very funny! Now I get Mark Twain the American Humorist! Very good! The Kindle Edition however SUCKS an there are NO illustrations and with every new chapter you get a page that looks like you started over to the beginning in the book, very confusing.

Purchased Aug.2018. super small type. On pg. 41 (this amateur printed book) the first paragraph was repeated "4"times. The paragraph begins- "I can tell you a most laughable thing indeed , if you would like to listen to it." ------------"4"times!
Thought about sending this homemade wonder- back home, but decided to keep "Roughing It" with Mr. Twain. Then go camping and use this to start the campfire!

I'm a big Mark Twain fan and read this book many years ago. Probably before you were born :-). I decided to read it again and I'm glad I did. One of the greatest American humorists in full flight.

It's Mark Twain so of course there will be great writing with humour. I loved the stagecoach ride from Missouri to Nevada, not so much his failed mining experiences in Nevada, San Francisco was interesting and Hawaii was fabulous. As this was all written first hand in around 1870, it is of course historically fascinating and great to be observed by such a master, but it did drag in the middle mining chapters that went on far too long.

A stagecoach journey with his brother to Nevada for 3 month trip which turns into a 6 year epic adventure. It's Mark Twain on an extended camping trip, so how can this bad? All of his travelogues are gems and this is no exception. Lake Tahoe, gold and silver mining, caught in a blinding blizzard and more.
Wonderful read! I savor many paragraphs for their descriptions and for the humor. It's an excellent narrative of what a stagecoach ride out west was really like, and the euphoria and disappointment of searching for gold and silver. Highly recommended!
