about

The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrim’s Progress, is Mark Twain’s best known travel book, and one of the best-selling travel books of all times. It was also Twain’s best-selling work during his lifetime. The book recounts Twain’s 1867 travels with a group of fellow Americans to Europe and the Holy Land aboard the chartered vessel, Quaker City, and began as a series of letters for the New York and San Francisco newspapers which sponsored his participation in the trip. The letters were later revised and compiled into a subscription book, published in 1869.

Twain was one of the originators of the personal style of travel writing, and his “guidebook” is a unique mix of comedic observations, travel guide and stinging satire. His keen wit is turned on both his fellow travelers as well as the sights and culture of the Europe, and is in many ways very similar to modern satiric style.
