This irresistible tale of the adventures of two friends growing up in frontier America is one of Mark Twain’s most popular novels. The farcical, colorful, and poignant escapades of Tom and his friend Huckleberry Finn brilliantly depict the humor and pathos of growing up on the geographic and cultural rim of nineteenth-century America. Originally intended for children, the book transcends genre in its magical depiction of innocence and possibility, and is now regarded as one of Twain’s masterpieces. As Frank Conroy observes in his Introduction, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer “has become a sacred text within the body of American literature.” 

In the Adventure's of Tom Sawyer, Tom's inflation of reality mixes with actual turn of events, and becomes the stuff of glorious adventure, and unexpected danger. Thus, a superstition about curing wart leads Tom and his friend, Huckleberry Finn, to witness a murder in a graveyard. They are torn between their guilt, letting the wrong man be accused and their dread of the true murderer's wrath.
