In 1984, as plans for the Mark Twain sesquicentennial were being formed, CBS News commentator Powers returned to his hometown of Hannibal, Mo., and here lovingly compares contemporary Hannibal with the Hannibal of his boyhood and of Mark Twain's early years. ""Many readers will rejoice in this book's humor, warmth and poignancy,'' PW stated. (November)
