Ten Nights in a Bar-Room: And What I Saw There
Originally published in 1854, Ten Nights in a Bar-Room was the most important American temperance novel, rivaling Uncle Tom's Cabin for popularity at the time. It satisfied the appetite for the sensational and the lurid, yet at the same time was endorsed by all the clergy.
