From the famous episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his own youth. A somber undercurrent flows through the high humor 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.

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.
Dover (2011) unabridged republication of the Chatto & Windus, London, 1897 edition.
(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.
