Mark Twain's, "Following the Equator" (sometimes titled "More Tramps Abroad") is a non-fiction social commentary in the form of a travelogue published in 1897. Twain found himself nearly bankrupt at the age of 60 -- so he took a lecture tour of the British Empire to generate funds and published this book, which was critical of Imperialism.
