Leben auf dem Mississippi ist eine 1883 erschienene Erzählung des US-amerikanischen Schriftstellers Mark Twain über sein eigenes Leben als Lotse auf verschiedenen Mississippi-Dampfern in der Zeit vor und nach dem Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg. Neben eigenen Erinnerungen und Eindrücken werden in das Buch eine Vielzahl von Anekdoten aus dem Mississippigebiet eingebracht. Der Hauptstrang der Handlung besteht aus der Schilderung der Lehrjahre des Mark Twain, der auf einem Mississippi-Dampfer eine mehrjährige Ausbildung zum Lotsen absolvierte. Er beschreibt mit großer Hingabe die Kunst des Steuerns von Schiffen über den sich ständig verändernden Fluss mit seinen Strudeln, Sandbänken und Untiefen. Nach dem Ende seiner Ausbildung steuerte er eine zeitlang als Lotse verschiedene Schiffe über den Mississippi, bis durch den Bürgerkrieg die Schifffahrt zum Erliegen kam. <br />Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 -1910), besser bekannt unter seinem Pseudonym Mark Twain, war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Mark Twain ist vor allem als Autor der Bücher über die Abenteuer von Tom Sawyer und Huckleberry Finn bekannt. Er war ein Vertreter des amerikanischen Realismus und ist besonders wegen seiner humoristischen, von Lokalkolorit und genauen Beobachtungen sozialen Verhaltens geprägten Erzählungen sowie aufgrund seiner scharfzüngigen Kritik an der amerikanischen Gesellschaft berühmt.

<b>What will a person give to forsake his destiny? </b><br /><br />From his very incarnation, Mordred has been a pawn in Camelot's history. Foretold by Merlin that he will grow up to kill his father, the beloved King Arthur, young Mordred struggles with his fate, loathing the great king who tried to kill him as a baby, yet journeying to Camelot where he learns to serve and idolize the legendary leader. Torn between feelings of love and hate, Mordred yearns to make peace with Arthur, who still refuses to acknowledge him. But Mordred is determined to have peace at any price--even if it costs him his soul. <br />     In <i>I Am Mordred</i>, one of the most fascinating and misunderstood heroes of Arthurian lore comes to life in an epic fantasy for Camelot fans. <br /><br />"In language worthy of her heroic subject, Springer reworks Arthuriana to craft an original tale resonant with archetypal themes of love, loss, betrayal and reconciliation. Her strong female characters and bold recasting of traditional villains and heroes will draw the rapt attention of both sexes." —<i>Publishers Weekly</i>
