About the book:

This is Mark Twains first novel about Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, and it has become one of the worlds best-loved books. It is a fond reminiscence of life in Hannibal, Missouri, an evocation of Mark Twains own boyhood along the banks of the Mississippi during the 1840s. "Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred," he tells us. This is a book one never forgets: Tom whitewashing Aunt Pollys fence, Tom and Hucks dreadful oath, their cure for warts ("spunk water" and dead cats), Toms puppy love for Becky Thatcher, the boys playing "pirate" on Jacksons Island.

This Mark Twain Library text is the only edition since the first (1876) to be based directly on the authors manuscript and to include all of the "200 rattling pictures" Mark Twain commissioned from one of his favorite illustrators, True W. Williams.
