The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Living along the Mississippi River in the 1840s, Aunt Polly raises three playful children—Tom, Sid, and Mary. Like most boys his age, Tom is adventurous, which is just another way of saying he gets into trouble. Yet Tom and his partner-in-crime, Huck Finn, get in over their heads when they witness a murder in a graveyard. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an extraordinary classic of a young man’s creativity and affection, society’s hypocrisy, and the anxiety of an unpredictable world which has resonated through American culture for the past century. We can find a mischievous young child longing for an adventure somewhere within us all.
