The author of outstanding travel books, autobiographical works and novels, including the classic The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens, 1835-1910) is regarded by many as America's finest humorist and a major writer of short stories. The four selections in this volume span his entire writing career and are among his best-known stories. They include `The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,` one of Twain's most amusing pieces of folk humor, first published in 1865; `The 1,000,000 Bank Note,` a light hearted exploration of the power of money; `The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg,` a masterfully written short story about greed; and his last work, `The Mysterious Stranger,` a novelette published posthumously in 1916, presenting Twain's rather grim views of God, man and the universe.
