Description

First published in 1865, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” was Mark Twain's first real literary success and arguably launched his career as a writer. The story revolves around a tale the narrator once heard about a gambler named Jim Smiley who would bet on absolutely anything. An amusing tale of mistaken identity and a frog called Daniel Webster, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” is a must-read that will not disappoint fans of Twain's unique work. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), more commonly known under the pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, lecturer, publisher and entrepreneur most famous for his novels “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” (1876) and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” (1884). Other notable works by this author include: “The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today” (1873) and “The Prince and the Pauper” (1881). Read & Co. Classics is proudly republishing this classic short story now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned biography of the author.
