About this item
Mark Twain was one of the nineteenth century's greatest chroniclers of childhood, and of all his works his beloved novelThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer most enchantingly and timelessly captures the sheer pleasure of being a boy.Tom Sawyer is as clever, imaginative, and resourceful as he is reckless and mischievous, whether conning his friends into painting a fence, playing pirates with his pal Huck Finn, witnessing his own funeral, or helping to catch a murderer. Twain’s novel glows with nostalgia for the Mississippi River towns of his youth and sparkles with his famous humor, but it is also woven throughout with a subtle awareness of the injustices and complexities of the old South that Twain so memorably portrays.
The adventures of a mischievous young boy and his friends growing up in a Mississippi River town in the nineteenth century.
