In 1867, Mark Twain and a group fellow-Americans toured Europe and the Holy Land, aboard a retired Civil War ship known as "Quaker City." Throughout the journey, Twain kept a written record of his experiences. "The Innocents Abroad" is both a travelogue and a critique of clashing cultures-but more importantly, it is an entertaining and insightful work written by one of the great masters of American prose.
