摘要:

An account of Twain's experiences as an apprentice riverboat pilot in the days of the great Mississippi steamboats.

Both a memoir and a travel book, Mark Twain recalls his days as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River before the American Civil War, and then many years after, recounts a trip as passenger along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans. The book begins with a brief history of the river as reported by Europeans and Americans, beginning with the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, continues with Twain's anecdotes of his training as a steamboat pilot, as the 'cub' (apprentice) of an experienced pilot, and the science of navigating the ever-changing Mississippi River. On the later trip downriver, despite of improvements in navigation and boat construction, the time of the steamboat is passing. There is competition from railroads, and as he describes new, large cities, and he adds observations on greed, gullibility, tragedy, and bad architecture.
