Mark Twain is most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel." Among dozens of titles, some of his works include The Innocents Abroad, A Tramp Abroad, Roughing It, Life on the Mississippi, The Prince and the Pauper, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and many more.
Written in 1905 and published posthumously, this short piece is one of a series Twain wrote concerning the story of Adam and Eve, including Extracts from Adamís Diary, Eve's Diary, That Day In Eden, Eve Speaks, and the Autobiography of Eve. This item is very short (less than 2500 words), and written with low-key humor.
Adam visits the dinosaur exhibit at the New York Museum of Natural History, and later meets and converses with a young mother on a park bench ó a distant relative, no doubt.
Short and simple. Oh, it does have one drop-cap
. But no illustrations.
Take a peek, why don't you?
