A lost memoir about Mark Twain, back in print for the first time in more than 100 years!
Elizabeth Wallace (1865-1960) met Mark Twain in 1908 while vacationing in Bermuda and they became fast friends. Three years after Twain's death, Wallace published this memoir of their friendship. A breezy, popular treatment of their time together, Wallace's focus is on Twain's love of fun and his caring friendship. Twain always loved Bermuda, from the day of his first visit to the day he departed from his final trip, just weeks before his death. Wallace's memoir shows Twain full of life and health and shows his life-long love of children and childhood.
