The creator of successful one-man shows in which he impersonates the beloved Mark Twain delivers a fascinating reading of letters the journalist/author dispatched to the SACRAMENTO UNION in 1866 while visiting the Sandwich Islands (now known as Hawaii). Twain's superb writing about the history of that exotic paradise and his experiences there delivers a powerful audio experience. Listeners will feel they too are discovering the geography of the islands. One can almost smell the fragrant flowers and experience the balmy breezes. This would be a lovely gift, suitable for almost anyone on any occasion--but you'll want a copy for your personal collection as well. L.C. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
