Mark Twain, on the road to Stormfield


It’s about a third of a mile from the north gate to the house. It was the route he took to the train station and on to the city. And the road he traveled down to see his Redding home for the first time. You can easily imagine Jean ridding her horse down the unpaved road to the post office and the hearse taking her body to Elmira, New York for burial. It was the road Albert Paine walked to visit Twain for an evening of pool and stories. And the road to Isabel Lyon’s home, just outside the gate.

    Just discovered yur blog – really wonderful. I love the concept of following the process of putting together your film and, having lived in Redding for 18 years, also am very interested in Twain’s relationship with our town. Photos are great as well.
