Re-read for a second time for a reading project. Reading the Large Print version this time, because it's the only version our library has.

This short novel - particularly short for Twain, considering the size of his Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer - is one of Mark Twain's less-known books. It's still a good-un, with his characteristic dry humor and local Missouri flavor. His dialog for Roxy, the slave, is difficult to read at times, and his use of the "N word", though typical to the period, was jarring. But the lessons about how people were treated differently based on their perceived race are still useful in our "post-racial" society.
