EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED VERSION
TWO NOVELS IN A SINGLE BOOK
In a unique edition, read two of the best American novels of all time:
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), featuring one of the best-loved characters in American fiction.
The novel is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Mark Twain spent his own youth. A sombre undercurrent flows through the high humour and unabashed nostalgia of the novel, however, for beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
Intended at first as a simple story of a boy's adventures in the Mississippi Valley, the book grew and matured under Twain's hand into a work of immeasurable richness and complexity.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), American author and humorist, wrote both masterpieces at the height of his literary talent.
He was first trained as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi river. 'Mark Twain', phrase used on riverboats to indicate that the water is two fathoms deep and therefore safe, became the pen name by which he acquired worldwide fame.
This work is available with two different covers (ISBN 978-1530960200 and ISBN 978-1517797133).
