The Gilded Age

“No country can be well governed unless its citizens as a body keep religiously before their minds that they are the guardians of the law, and that the law officers are only the machinery for its execution, nothing more.”

This book was so explosively popular at its time, it created the nickname of an era. The Gilded Age heavily critiques the government and society of Victorian America by following two different storylines. For those interested in Mark Twain’s political leanings, this is certainly the book for you.

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.
