"Buildings and sites frequented by great men of the past often are more inspiring and evocative than their deeds or written annals." (Cicero.) This fine book of the restoration of Mark Twain Memorial takes the reader directly into Mark Twain's home in Hartford. As inspired, enlightened or amused as one might be by Mark Twain's writing, he cannot help discovering more of the man in this charming and informative book. Delightfully, the book manages to be at once an historical account, a handbook for the restoration process, and a new intimate look at the man Mark Twain through his surroundings and the events that occurred during the family's residency in Hartford. The ambience is as real for the reader as it was for Mark Twain himself who said. "To us our house was not unsentient matter. . .it had a heart, and a soul, and eyes to see us with. . . we could not enter it unmoved." Nor shall the reader. This book provides not merely a visit to the Mark Twain home. It is rather like being a house guest of the Mark Twain family.
