Though known for his classic novels of adventure and coming of age, Mark Twain is equally esteemed for his short stories, which abound with the colorful characters and often comic antics readers have come to expect from his longer works. Included here is “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” a wild yarn involving a case of mistaken identity, a gambler who’d bet on anything, and an unusual frog named Daniel Webster. Originally published in the Saturday Press in 1865, the tale was immensely popular, and in 1867 an expanded version was published.
