Can children today can imagine a world entirely unplugged and spent out-of-doors when the weather is fair? They – along with their appreciative parents – are able to revisit what that must have been like in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the bildungsroman of a young boy who lives in a fictional town along the Mississippi River in the 19th century. Without TV and video games to occupy his time, Tom – along with his willing comrade Huckleberry Finn, who would get his own novel – gets into scrape after scrape, racking up troubles even as he wins over his sweetheart Becky.

6 1.5-hour cassettesFrom the Inside Flap:
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.
This version, which reproduces the Mark Twain Project edition, is the approved text of the Center for Scholarly Editions of the Modern Language Association.
