Summary "Samuel Clemens first encountered the Bermuda Islands in 1867 and retreated there many more times for its beauty, pace, weather and company, both local and elite. Hoffmann gathers and examines passages from travel pieces, letters, and unpublished autobiographical dictation to illuminate the writer's love for Bermuda and its seafaring culture"--Provided by publisher.
