The Ship Dwellers / A Story of a Happy Cruise

Albert Bigelow Paine was an American author and biographer best known for his work with Mark Twain. He wrote in several genres, including fiction, humor, and verse, for children and adults. His most notable work was a three-volume biography of Mark Twain. ~~~~ As a child, Paine became acquainted with Mark Twain’s Innocents Abroad, and dreamed of someday following in the footsteps of the Quaker City “Pilgrims.” Four decades later, he found himself boarding an ocean liner bound for the Mediterranean, determined to visit the Holy Land and other points of interest. ~~~~ This travelogue, while an homage to the Innocents, has a scope and personality of its own. Join the author as he describes his experiences in Algiers, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Israel, and the land that impressed him more than any other, Egypt. An entertaining read, with a sufficiency of educational interludes, moments of sweet nostalgia, and liberal helpings of wit and humor.
