Many people know that Mark Twain was really a man named Sam Clemens and that he chose that term as his pen name from his time as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi River. But not many people know how Sam learned to pilot a steamboat. It was all thanks to a man named Horace Bixby, the pilot who trained Sam, but not without a great deal of frustration and irritation. Sam learned what to do at last, and he ultimately discovered that his skill could save lives.
