"Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures? No, he wasn't. It only just pisoned him for more." So Huck declares at the start of the first of these once celebrated but now little-known sequels to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. These unjustly neglected works are among the most enjoyable of Mark Twain's novels. In Tom Sawyer Abroad, Tom, Huck, and Jim travel across the Atlantic in a futuristic air balloon to encounter lions, robbers, fleas, and some of the world's greatest wonders. In Tom Saywer, Detective, Tom and Huck journey down the Mississippi to help solve a mysterious crime. Told in Huck's voice and replete with down-hime backwoods Missouri wisdom, these two stories tackle every subject from the Crusades and chronometers to ghosts and swearing popes.--Publisher description

The Mythologizing of Mark Twain by Sara deSaussure Davis( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of Mark Twain seldom doubt his genius, but defining that genius and locating its source continue to challenge students of American literature. Equally elusive is an explanation of the intriguing phenomenon of Twain as a mythic figure, both shaper and embodier of an American mythos. Perhaps no single critical approach can adequately assess the complex force behind Samuel Clemens and Mark Twain. This native genius, our quintessential artist, rightfully provokes a number of powerful responses, as these original essays demonstrate
