Impish, daring young Tom Sawyer is the bane of the old, the hero of the young. There were some in his dusty old Missippi town who believed he would be President, if he escaped a hanging. For wherever there is mischief or adventure, Tom is at the heart of it. During one hot summer, Tom witnesses a murder, runs away to be a pirate, attends his own funeral, rescues an innocent man from the gallows, searches for treasure in a haunted house, foils a devilish plot and discovers a box of gold. But can he escape his nemesis, the villainous Injun Joe?
"In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Twain anticipates every modern American novel, from Salinger's The Catcher In The Rye to Pynchon's Mason And Dixon, in mapping a fluvial, free-flowing adventure"
