This was a very funny book. It started out as a project by Samuel Langhorne Clemens, pen name: Mark Twain. It didn't ever come to much. It is a short story and keeps you guessing throughout the whole thing.
A man appears out of no where in a field buried in the snow...a greedy father won't let his daughter marry...an uncle writes a will leaving a large sum of money to the daughter of his brother, the one that won't let her get married yet...a feud...a fast talking stranger...a murder... and eventually someone gets married!
Read it and find out for yourself what makes it so funny!
