Critical sites about Life on the Mississippi
- Life on the Mississippi, by Mark Twain
- “If the first fifteen chapters of Mr. Clemens’s book, twelve are reprinted from The Atlantic; but they are so full of entertaining and instructive matter that they will repay a second reading. In the three introductory ones which precede these, the physical character of the river is sketched, and brief reference is made to the early travelers and explorers of the stream, — De Soto, Marquette, and La Salle; these latter belonging to the epoch of what Mr. Clemens quaintly calls “historical history,” as distinguished from that other unconventional history, which he does not define, but certainly embodies in the most graphic form.”
