    Mark Twain famously died in 1910 and Ray Bradbury was born ten years later in 1920 And on that day, the shadow of Samuel Clemens touched a mark on the baby s head, and nearby the shade of Charles Dickens looked on in approval.Bradbury is the bridge to our past, our bright and strong and colorful past Twain s world was as bold as a young America, full of steamboats, and fishing holes and jumping frogs Bradbury, no less an American, but a resident of the October Country, revealed the long shado Mark Twain famously died in 1910 and Ray Bradbury was born ten years later in 1920 And on that day, the shadow of Samuel Clemens touched a mark on the baby s head, and nearby the shade of Charles Dickens looked on in approval.Bradbury is the bridge to our past, our bright and strong and colorful past Twain s world was as bold as a young America, full of steamboats, and fishing holes and jumping frogs Bradbury, no less an American, but a resident of the...
