薩繆爾克萊門斯 (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) 出生於密蘇里州的佛羅里達,後來隨家人遷居到密蘇里州的漢尼拔 (Hannibal) ,並在此處長大成人。雖然在他的生命早期,他曾做過一些不同的工作,但克萊門斯最為人所熟知的是他的作家身份,他使用馬克吐溫 (Mark Twain) 來當做他的寫作筆名,五年後才出版了他的第一本一流品。吐溫是一位旅行記者、幽默文學家、作家及演講者,他最著名的作品是湯姆歷險記 (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) 及頑童流浪記 (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) 。他在密西西比河沿岸的漢尼拔渡過他的孩童時期,這個地方也成為他的靈感來源,豐富了他的水上歷險故事。 吐溫的足跡踏遍世界各地並以幽默及精彩的演講迷惑台下的聽眾,一如他書中的筆觸。

Samuel Langhorne Clemens was born in Florida, Missouri, and later moved with his family to Hannibal, Missouri, where he grew up. Although he had a number of odd jobs early in his life, Clemens is best known as a writer who took the pen name of Mark Twain about five years after he published his first major work. Twain was a traveling journalist, humorist, writer, and lecturer whose most famous novels are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. His childhood in Hannibal along the Mississippi River inspired colorful tales of adventures on the waterway. Twain traveled around the world and he dazzled audiences far and wide with lectures filled with the same humor and spirit found in his writings.
