Synopsis:
Mark Twain was one of the nineteenth century's greatest chroniclers of childhood, and of all his works his beloved novel The 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.

Review:

[front flap]
Mark Twain called his 1876 novel a "hymn to boyhood," and it remains an archetypal vision of pre-Civil War small-town America. Readers of all ages delight in its humorous narrative, delivered in a voice as mischievous and good-hearted as Tom Sawyer himself. Generations have played hooky with Twain's young hero, chuckling at his pranks and thrilling in his starry-eyed search for buried treasure.
This handsome edition is the only hardcover version that features all of True Williams's endearing illustrations. Chosen by Twain himself, Williams was the first artist to depict Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, leaving an indelible stamp on the popular image of American childhood.

Mark Twain
(Samuel Langhorne Clemens, 1835–1910)
A native of Missouri, Twain pursued a variety of professions until his 1865 short story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," created an overnight sensation and propelled him into literary prominence. Novelist, journalist, essayist, and a lecturer of unsurpassed popularity, Twain was known primarily as a humorist in his lifetime, but he has since come to be regarded as one of America's greatest authors.
