Read by Kerry Shale (Abridged: 2hrs 25mins)
Like the hero in the novel, Mark Twain was also a time traveller. His boyhood was spent in the American South, where people followed agrarian lives. As the country modernized, inventions such as electricity and the move towards manufacturing rapidly changed the way people lived. By taking his readers back to King Arthur's 6th-century court, Twain explores the struggle between industrial progress and the ways of a rural past.
