Published in 1880 by The American Publishing Company, A Tramp Abroad was the third of Twain's travelogues. Partly fact, partly fiction, it details a journey made mostly on foot through central and southern Europe, taking in Germany, France, Switzerland and Italy. While Twain did in fact make the journey as described, much of the detail in the book and in particular the commentary made by Twain central character, is for the most part fiction, used to present a satirical view of the American tourist abroad. Interspersed amongst the text are a number of short stories and European legends. Some of the latter are made up, with Twain's commentator asserting their truthfulness purely on the basis of his standing. At the end of the book are six appendices, essentially humorous essays on a range of subjects including the Awful German Language and Heidelberg Castle.
