Twain traveled as a journalist across the Great Planes and Rocky Mountains to Nevada, Missouri, San Francisco, New York, the Mediterranean, and Connecticut. Many of his great works are said to have derived from his experiences in his previous vocations and travels. In 1861, Twain was made a Freemason at Polar Star Lodge No. 79 A.F.&A.M. in St. Louis.
