Has not been in print for many years and in this regard is a new and rare collection. The Jumping Frog was the story that launched Twain’s career. He was loitering around the Angels Camp mining town in California and was told the story in a worn out saloon by a bald-headed local who relayed it in a deadpan tone, with no hint of excitement or humor. When Twain sent it to a humorist friend in New York it was published in the prestigious Saturday Press, then reprinted by newspapers throughout Europe and America. This rare volume has 18 other stories and should serve as an exciting addition to those who appreciate Twain’s wit and wisdom. Paperback , ISBN 1585092002 , 6 x 9 , 128 pp.
