Twain was an active, even giddy, participant in all the great booms and busts of his time, launching himself into one harebrained get-rich scheme after another. But far from striking it rich, he failed with comical regularity in an era notorious for its wealth and excess. Mining firms failed; importing coca leaves from the Amazon fizzled. Crawford tells Twain's story of financial optimism and perseverance, and in doing so creates a cracked-mirror history of American business itself.
