Summary
A tramp abroad (1880) is based on Twain's travels in Europe from April 1878 to August 1879, blending autobiography and fiction. Presented with the author's original sketches, Twain provides a humorous travelogue with commentary on Old World customs, Wagnerian opera, and the German language interlaced with American reminiscences. Following the equator (1897) chronicles Twain's 1895 round-the-world lecture tour, including the Fiji Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Ceylon, India, Mauritius, and South Africa. Includes social criticism and accounts of the Black Hole of Calcutta and events in South Africa that would lead to the Boer War.--Adapted from Book jacket
