In this unabridged recording of one of Mark Twain´s lesser-known short stories, the ´´campaign of crime´´ referred to was a rash of robberies, arson, racketeering, and murders in Connecticut, where the author was living at that time. Alternatively funny, disturbing, and self-revelatory, an abridged performance of this piece has been part of Richard Henzel´s Jefferson Award nominated stage show Mark Twain In Person since 1979, and was later broadcast on public television in a special produced by WTTW-TV in Chicago, winning the Chicago Emmy for Original Adaptation. Narrator Richard Henzel has been performing and interpreting Mark Twain since 1967, and has narrated more than a score of Mark Twain titles for The Mark Twain In Person Audiobook Library. 1.

In 1882, Mark Twain decided to write a memoir of his experiences growing up with, and later steering steamboats on, the Mississippi River. Following a history of the exploration and early commerce, he takes us with him as he ´´learns the river´´ and becomes a licensed pilot. The third part of the audiobook tells of his return to the river in preparation for this book. This important geographical phenomenon has been America´s greatest single source of progress - and pain.

The death of Mark Twain´s daughter, Jean Clemens, occurred early in the morning of December 24, 1909. A few hours later, Twain was writing steadily. ´´I am setting it down,´´ he said, ´´everything. It is a relief to me to write it. It furnishes me an excuse for thinking.´´ Four hours later he said, ´´I have finished it... some day - at the proper time - it can end my autobiography. It is the final chapter.´´ Four months later -almost to the day - (April 21st) he was with Jean. This is a Mark Twain In Person Audio Library recording, narrated by Mark Twain interpreter and actor Richard Henzel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel.

There are adventures galore on the way to that climactic episode in the mining camps of northern California, as young Sam Clemens sets off on the Overland Stage line, recording the fauna, flora, and humanity of The Wild West. He tastes condemned army bacon, ´´slumgullion,´´ and Mormon ´´Valley Tan.´´ He buys a genuine Mexican plug. He hazards death from freezing in a blizzard, drowning in a desert, dissolving in an alkali lake, and roasting in a forest fire. A vivid and entertaining account of this brilliant writer´s journey through this fascinating era of American history, characterized by marked extremes of lawlessness, heroism, cowardice, greed, hope, and desperation, and with rough characters, stunning landscapes, and close encounters with Indians. Narrator Richard Henzel has been performing and interpreting Mark Twain since 1967, and has narrated more than a score of Mark Twain titles. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel.

Young Lord Berkeley has discovered that his family´s title and wealth was fraudulently obtained by previous generations, and announces to his his father, Lord Rossmore, that he intends to travel to America, there to return the Earldom of Rossmore to the rightful heir, along with all of its wealth, titles, and privilege, and to begin his life over again—´´begin it right—begin it on the level of mere manhood, unassisted by factitious aids, and succeed or fail by pure merit or the want of it.´´ As it happens, ´´The Rightful Earl´´ is an imaginative and enterprising attorney/inventor/office-seeker known as Colonel Mulberry Sellers.While less familiar to Mark Twain fans than Tom Sawyer, Connecticut Yankee, or Huckleberry Finn, The American Claimant is a delightful tale, told with Mark Twain´s trademark American humor, his biting social satire, and his well-drawn characters. Narrated by American actor and Mark Twain interpreter Richard Henzel, whose ´´Mark Twain In Person´´ has been seen over a thousand times in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain. 1. Language: English.
