Summary

From the episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, this novel is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which the author spent his own youth. Beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer Summary

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

From the famous episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his own youth. A somber undercurrent flows through the high humor and unabashed nostalgia of the novel, however, for beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.
