Sequel to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn begun by Mark Twain in 1885, finished by Lee Nelson In 1885 while The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was becoming one of the best-selling American classics of modern times, Mark Twain began this sequel in which Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer, and Jim head west on the trail of two white girls kidnapped by Sioux warriors, learning the hard way that “book Injuns and real Injuns ain’t the same.” Fifteen thousand words into the work, Twain stopped in the middle of a sentence, never to go back. The unfinished story sat on dusty shelves for more than a hundred years until the University of California cut a deal with Utah author Lee Nelson to finish it. The story, Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer Among the Indians, is the first new book with Mark Twain’s name on it in nearly a hundred years, with readers saying they can’t tell where Twain stops and Nelson begins. It is a story of adventure, wit, and wisdom with Tom and Huck seeking true love while tramping through hostile Indian country, befriending Bill Hickman and Porter Rockwell, stealing from the United States Army, then facing a gunfight and hangman’s noose in Sacramento, California. Said Lee Nelson: “I have no idea how Twain intended to finish the story, and I reason that he didn’t know either or he would have done it. I just hope that wherever he is, he enjoys my conclusion as much as I enjoyed his beginning.”

About the Author:

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors our nation has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but also the father of American literature.

From AudioFile:

Mark Twain's immortal characters come alive again in this sequel to THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. Lee Nelson has picked up where Twain left off, using his unfinished manuscripts. The story is done well, capturing the spirit and adventure of Tom and Huck. Grover Gardner tells the tale in fine form, using the dialect made famous by Twain, and pacing the plot just as nicely. Tom and Huck find adventure on the Plains when they set out to learn what real Indians are like. The characters they meet are reminiscent of those in James Fenimore Cooper's LEATHERSTOCKING TALES. As in the earlier book, the pair find more than they bargained for. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
