Whether tricking other boys into doing his work or sneaking off to bury a dead cat, Tom Sawyer is a boy with a fondness for mischief. But things become grim when he and his pal Huck Finn witness a murder and cover-up by the lawless Injun Joe. Even though he's scared the murderer will come after him next, Tom continues to explore the Missouri countryside with his friends and attempts to woo the new girl in town. Another encounter with Injun Joe, however, will put both Tom and Huck's daringness to the ultimate test.

The gilded age by Mark Twain( Book )

5 editions published between 1873 and 2006 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1873, The Gilded Age is both a biting satire and a revealing portrait of post-Civil War America-an age of corruption when crooked land speculators, ruthless bankers, and dishonest politicians voraciously took advantage of the nation's peacetime optimism. With his characteristic wit and perception, Mark Twain and his collaborator, Charles Dudley Warner, attack the greed, lust, and naivete of their own time in a work which endures as a valuable social document and one of America's most important satirical novels

The adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Mark Twain's first novel about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and it has become one of the world's best loved books. It is a fond reminiscence of life in Hannibal, Missouri, an evocation of Mark Twain's one boyhood along the banks of the Mississippi during the 1840s. "Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred," he tells us. The Mark Twain Library edition contains the only text since the first edition (1876) to be based directly on the author's manuscript and to include all of the "200 rattling pictures" Mark Twain commissioned from one of his favorite illustrators, True W. Williams. This landmark anniversary edition contains a selection of original documents by Mark Twain, including several letters in his inimitable voice about writing Tom Sawyer and about its original publication."--Back cover
