Following the Equator

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”

In 1894 Mark Twain almost had to declare bankruptcy but, in an attempt, to pay off his debts he embarked on an around-the-world tour. Notes from this trip, like many of his previous adventures, were compiled into a book and travelogue. This book is a mixture of social commentary and humor blended with a little fiction here and there.

These books from Sea Wolf Press all have special covers just for the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum as well as an informational section at the back of the book describing our properties. This is the perfect way to remember your visit to Hannibal or to share the experience with a friend. You can also ask to have the books embossed with a museum seal to make them even more special.
