The classic boyhood adventure tale, updated with a new introduction by noted Mark Twain scholar R. Kent Rasmussen.
A consummate prankster with a quick wit, Tom Sawyer dreams of a bigger fate than simply being a 'rich boy.' Yet through the novel's humorous escapades—from the famous episode of the whitewashed fence to the trial of Injun Joe—Mark Twain explores the deeper themes of the adult world, one of dishonesty and superstition, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.
