Dear Hal:

You'll probably get a deluge of suggestions, so this may be redundant.

One of my favorite books is called Overland with Mark Twain: James B. Pond's
Photographs and Journal of the North American Lecture Tour of 1895. It
contains some of the most candid and unusual photos of Twain, Livy, Clara
and Sam Moffett ever published.

Example, Twain eating breakfast in a Hotel room in Olympia Washington or
Twain with kittens in a Norwegian Shanty town in Montana. I highly recommend
it. It was published by the Center for MT Studies at Quarry Farm in 1992.

Good luck

Marty Baker
