  • Rather than be 'sivilized' by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn - the grubby but good-natured son of a local drunk - sets off with Jim, an escaped slave, to find freedom on the Mississippi river. With the law on their tail, they navigate a world of robbers, slave hunters and con men, and Huck must choose between what society says is 'right' and his own burgeoning understanding of Jim's friendship and humanity. Nostalgic and melancholy in equal measure, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is a razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that, despite beginning life as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, is now seen in its own right as one of the most important of all American novels. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn features an afterword by playwright and screenwriter Peter Harness. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

  • Mark Twain realizó su viaje en pos del oro, entre Saint Louis, Missouri, y Virginia city, Nevada, en algún momento entre 1856 y 1865. En principio, había planificado un viaje de ida y vuelta de tres meses de duración qu|e incluía una pequeña estancia en compañía de su hermano.
    Finalmente, y tras un sorprendente surtido de tribulaciones, recorrió cerca de 3000 km durante siete años. En la actualidad, esta distancia que antaño recorría una diligencia en 22 días, podría cubrirse en tren o por carretera en unas 26 horas.
    Escritores norteamericanos hay muchos, entretenidos, hay menos, que sus obras hayan pasado al acervo cultural de la humanidad, se cuentan con los dedos de una mano, pero que además hayan escrito sobre el Lejano Oeste en primera persona y en «directo», sólo hay uno: Mark Twain.
    Pasando Fatigas no es únicamente la amena narración de un viaje verídico, sino un verdadero compendio de vida cotidiana en el Far West magistralmente escrito. Sólo una duda asaltará al lector... Twain montaba a caballo lo justo para no caerse, no podía remar por jijas, si hacía un fuego incendiaba medio estado, no cogía un pico por miedo a romperse un pie... ¿esta manera de mostrarse a sí mismo era un recurso literario... o realmente Twain era una mezcla entre Buffalo Bill y Mister Bean?

  • Two Novels in One Volume Only !
    This book contains two novels by Mark Twain :

    I - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
    II - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. Tom Sawyer accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness a trio of body snatchers getting into a fight. When one of the men is killed, they overhear the murderer's plans to bury a box of treasure. What follows is a an adventure of a lifetime, as Tom and Huck search for the hidden treasure.
    Huckleberry Finn runs away from the abuse of his alcoholic father. He immediately befriends a runaway slave named Jim, who is escaping the abuse of his owners. The two set out on a journey that involves theft, murder, and revenge. Along the way, Huckleberry Finn encounters Tom Sawyer, and the two hatch a plan to save Jim from a lifetime of slavery.

    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived. Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises - a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get "engaged" by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been "engaged" previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness the murder of Dr. Robinson.
