Mark Twain Collection – the Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg and Other Stories and Th

Curl up with a collection of stories from the pen of one of the masters of American fiction and humor writing. This carefully curated volume of Twain's short stories represents a cross-section of some the author's finest work, including the title piece, which follows a stranger's plot to corrupt a purportedly honest community. The title story is Twain's darkly fantastic take on religion, reality, and the meaning of life. It takes place in 1590 in the remote Austrian village of Eseldorf, where few young boys greet an unexpected visitor: an angel named Satan. Among the six other stories included are "A Fable," "Hunting the Deceiful Turkey," and "The McWilliamses and the Burglar Alarm."
