The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain was first published in 1876. It is a prequel to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and tells the story of a young boy growing up in Mississippi in the mid-nineteenth century. The book follows Tom as he falls in love with Becky Thatcher, witnesses Injun Joe murdering someone, runs away from home with his friends, Huckleberry Finn and Joe Harper, hunts for buried treasure, and gets lost in a cave. When it was originally published, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was a failure, but in the end, it turned out to be Twain's best selling novel during his lifetime. Now it is considered a masterpiece of American literature. With elements of satire and social criticism, it was also Twain's first novel - at the time it was written, he had previously only written books such as The Innocents Abroad. In contrast to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this book has a third person narrative. Twain named the character after a real life local hero who became famous for saving 90 passengers from a shipwreck.
