A publication of the Mark Twain Project of The Bancroft Library. Like most of Mark Twain’s best work, Roughing It is largely autobiographical, as its preface explains: 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. Still, there is information in the volume; information concerning an interesting episode in the history of the Far West, about which no books have been written by persons who were on the ground in person.

Based on Mark Twain's own years of "variegated vagabonding" in the West, this comic narrative offers a virtual grab-bag of tall tales, folklore, beast fables, travelogue, local color, autobiography, history, geography―even statistics. This new critical edition of Roughing Itsupersedes the 1972 edition published in the Works of Mark Twain over twenty years ago. It is an entirely new undertaking, by a different group of editors. Together they have made extensive use of newly discovered historical and textual materials, particularly biographical documents which illuminate how Mark Twain gave literary shape to his actual experiences in the West.This edition includes the more than 300 illustrations Mark Twain commissioned for his book. It also provides six new maps: two for Nevada in the 1860s and four to help trace the Clemens brothers' cross-country stagecoach route. The editors provide a comprehensive introduction that will supplant all previous accounts of how Mark Twain wrote and revised his second long book. Fully supplemented by the textual apparatus, the edition presents a complete record of Twain's revisions and is sure to become the standard text of Mark Twain's great Western adventure.Editorial work was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and by a generous gift from the L. J. Skaggs and Mary C. Skaggs Foundation.

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.
A great value and highly entertaining - except for the author's occasional overlong descriptions of this and that. Otherwise, Clemens' descriptions are really rich and hilarious, both of the American West, and his journey around the Mediterranean. Interestingly, Twain, the US literary hero and creator of Jim and Huck and Tom, show very clearly how US people have been extremely racist and mad for the gun forever. It's worth the read for that realization alone.
