The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
by Mark Twain




Overview -
A beloved masterpiece, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer captures the endearing tales of a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River in the mid-1800s. Tom's mischievousness places him and his friends into increasingly perilous situations, while, at the same time, Tom develops morally and comes to understand his relationship to society. Through his masterful use of satire, Twain exposes many of society's hypocrisies and superstitions and invites us to explore the balance between subversion and authority. Paradoxically, as Tom matures toward adulthood, Twain reveals the childishness of many adult institutions such as society, education, religion, and work. Simple and true, Tom's adventures are sure to remain both cherished and relevant to many generations yet to come. This premium hardcover edition is printed on acid-free 50-pound creme paper and set in a readable modern font. This quality volume is bound to make an attractive addition to any library.
