Rough and Rowdy Ways

Roughing It - Mark Twain 1872

Rough-hewn humor about Salt Lake City (including a scathing account of the Mormons), gold and silver prospecting (insanely hard work), real-estate speculation (101 cons and swindles),  gunslingers (10 feet tall), stage coach rides (horrible), and a journey to Hawaii.  Hilarious.

Twain is a bad man.
