Roughing It is semi-autobiographical travel literature written by American humorist Mark Twain. It was authored during 1870ndash;71 and published in 1872 as a prequel to his first book Innocents Abroad. Roughing It follows the travels of young Mark Twain through the Wild West during the years 1861ndash;1867. After a brief stint as a Confederate cavalry militiaman, he joined his brother who had been appointed Secretary of the Nevada Territory, on a stagecoach journey west. Twain consulted his brother's diary to refresh his memory and borrowed heavily from his active imagination for many stories in the novel. - Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
