Resurrected on banks of Riverworld, Samuel Langhorne Clemens has a dream to build a the best riverboat ever created. Then, to steer if up the endless waterway that dominates his new home planet--and at last discover its hidden source. But before he can carry out his plan, he first must undertake a dangerous voyage to unearth a fallen meteor. This mission would require striking an uneasy alliance with people of questionable reputation.
