Book of the Week - Autobiography of Mark Twain - Episode 3


Read by Kerry Shale. In Nevada in 1864 there was a sudden fashion for duelling. At the time Samuel L. Clemens, better known now as Mark Twain, was City Editor on the Virginia City Enterprise. He was just 29 years-old and though ambitious, he claims he had no desire to fight a duel, even for the honour of his paper. But somehow, in spite of his intentions, he managed to provoke the proprietor of the rival Virginia Union.
