Mark Twain lived and traveled in the West while it was still the lawless Wild West. The "civilized" East where Twain began his journey offered creature comforts and law-abiding citizens, while the West was often dirty, uncomfortable, and downright dangerous, due in part to outlaws and displaced Native Americans. Life was not easy in the West; hence, Twain was "roughing it."
