1915. Paine wrote fiction, humor, verse, travel books and edited several magazines; but his outstanding work was a three-volume biography of Mark Twain, with whom he lived and traveled for four years. This book, about the life of the beloved American humorist, by his greatest biographer, Paine, is in itself a dramatic and colorful story. It is a story that suggests in its elements much that make Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn two of the most popular boys' book in the English language. It is the story of a boy, born in the humblest surroundings, reared almost without schooling, yet who lived to achieve a worldwide fame; to attain honorary degrees from the greatest universities of America and Europe; to be loved and honored by men in all lands. It is the story of one of the world's very great men, the story of Mark Twain. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
