A Tramp Abroad By Mark Twain

More > southern Europe, taking in Germany, France, Switzerland and Italy.

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.< Less
