The Adventures of Tom Sawyerby Mark Twain
"Fiction - Adventure"|
|Year of Publication:||1876|
|Notes:||An enduring narrative of youthful escapades in a small Mississippi River town in the 1830s. The books’ nostalgic attitude and wistful recreation of pre-Civil War life are humorously spiced by its main character, Tom Sawyer, who is mischievous and irresponsible but goodhearted.|
COMMENTS — Mark Twain was the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. “Mark Twain” was a riverman’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.
