Оценка читателей

Bringing together 38 tales and sketches, "The 30 000 Dollar Bequest and Other Stories" provides a rare long view of Twain's work, covering virtually his entire career, from "Advice to Young Girls" (a spoof that appeared in 1865, just months before he achieved national acclaim for his "Jumping Frog" tale), to the title story, written in 1904.
