The Preface reads: "This is the story of a boy, born in the humblest surroundings, reared
almost without schooling, and amid benighted conditions such as to-day have no existence, yet who lived to achieve a world-wide fame; to attain honorary degrees from the greatest universities of America and Europe; to be sought by statesmen and kings; to be loved and honored by all men in all lands, and mourned by them when he died. It is the story of one of
the world's very great men--the story of Mark Twain."
