The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg

“There is nothing in the world like a persuasive speech to fuddle the mental apparatus and upset the convictions and debauch the emotions of an audience not practiced in the tricks and delusions of oratory.”

Mark Twain viewed this story as a “modern” retelling of the Garden of Eden. It speaks to his views on human nature as a man insulted by a seemingly virtuous town makes it his mission to corrupt them all.

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.
