in this book really happened. One or two were my own experiences. The others were experiences of boys in my school. Huck Finn really lived. Tom Sawyer is made of three real boys. My book is for boys and girls, but I hope that men and women also will read it. I hope that it will help them to remember pleasantly the days when they were boys and girls, and how they felt and thought and talked, what they believed, and what strange things they sometimes did.

6 1.5-hour cassettesFrom the Back Cover:
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.

(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.
