For more than thirty years, Jack has written unique tours for the University of California Alumni. To date he has personally led 72 of them. The “Golden Bears” have traveled with Jack to 49 states and a dozen countries following historic trails, presidential lives, Civil War campaigns, and Colonial American development. Among the more unusual tours in that long list are seven adventures following the life and writings of Sam Clemens, aka Mark Twain. This book connects the journals of those trips, adding the comments of Mark Twain describing many of the locations that were visited. For Jack, this is a work of great admiration for the finest of America’s authors.
