Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn: Their Classic Adventures, by Mark Twain

6.55

Of all the characters Mark Twain ever created, perhaps none are as memorable as his glittering young heroes Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

In addition to his everyday exploits (like digging for buried treasure, and trying to impress his adored Becky Thatcher), Tom Sawyer experiences a traumatic turn of events when he witnesses a murder, runs away, returns to attend his own funeral, and then testify in court.

The companion piece to Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn is a groundbreaking work of American Literature that still commands great acclaim (and still elicits controversy due to its overtly racial content).

Literary critic H. L. Mencken called Huckleberry Finn “one of the great masterpieces of the world…the full equal of Don Quixote and Robinson Crusoe.”

The authoritative manuscripts, completely uncensored, Twain’s timeless hymns to boyhood overflow with warmth, and slapstick humor, as they bring to vivid life his most lovable characters: Tom, Huck Finn, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, and of course the “scarifying” Injun Joe.
