TCHS and This and That films proudly announce the release of the exciting new documentary: 88 Days in The Mother Lode: Mark Twain Finds His Voice. This film focuses on a previously under studied and publicized aspect of the Twain Story; that the nearly three months spent in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties in the winter of 1864-1865 were crucial for his transformation from Sam Clemens to Mark Twain.
Well known Twain experts are interviewed in the documentary and reenactments were filmed on location in Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties, with local actors. This beautiful and compelling film makes a valuable contribution to the Twain story. Those with a casual interest in local history as well as serious students will find value in this production.
Your purchase of the DVD will help TCHS continue its mission of providing historical information to the public. Buy one today.
