The Innocents Abroad, Or, The New Pilgrim's Progress
G. Robertson, 1871 - 383 pagina's
Long before Rick Steves and Bill Bryson began offering insight on exotic travel destinations, Mark Twain chronicled his journeys in a series of popular travelogues that delighted Americans. Twain's earliest travelogue, The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress, is not only considered one of his most humorous books, but was also his bestselling work during his lifetime and is still one of the bestselling travel works of all time. Join Twain as he explores Mediterranean ports and important Holy Land sites, mocks his fellow travel companions aboard the USS Quaker City, and makes observations about human nature.
