Author: Mark Twain / Year: 1835-1910  / Genre: Humor

The Stolen White Elephant" was written by Mark Twain and published in 1882. In it, an Indian elephant, en route from India to Britain as a gift to the Queen, disappears in New Jersey.

Twain's satirical look at the police and newspaper worlds of the 1880's illustrates some of the more outrageous proclivities of each.
