Overview

In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa...
WE tried to make some plans, but we couldn't come to no agreement. Me and Jim was for turning around and going back home, but Tom allowed that by the time daylight come, so we could see our way, we would be so far toward England that we might as well go there, and come back in a ship, and have the glory of saying we done it.
About midnight the storm quit and the moon come out and lit up the ocean, and we begun to feel comfortable and drowsy; so we stretched out on the lockers and went to sleep, and never woke up again till sun-up. The sea was sparkling like di'monds, and it was nice weather, and pretty soon our things was all dry again.
We went aft to find some breakfast, and the first thing we noticed was that there was a dim light burning in a compass back there under a hood. Then Tom was disturbed. He says:
"You know what that means, easy enough. It means that somebody has got to stay on watch and steer this thing the same as he would a ship, or she'll wander around and go wherever the wind wants her to."
"Well," I says, "what's she been doing since—er—since we had the accident?"
"Wandering," he says, kinder troubled—"wandering, without any doubt. She's in a wind now that's blowing her south of east. We don't know how long that's been going on, either."

Meet the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 — April 21, 1910), better known by the pen name Mark Twain, was an American humorist, satirist, writer, and lecturer. Twain is most noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which has since been called the Great American Novel, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. He is also known for his quotations. During his lifetime, Clemens became a friend to presidents, artists, leading industrialists, and European royalty. Clemens enjoyed immense public popularity, and his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. American author William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature." Source: Wikipedia

    Old Characters Exhumed

    Twain wrote 'Tom Sawyer Abroad' as he wrote many other works, for financial gain. At approximately 40,000 words it is pale in both length and quality when compared to 'Huckleberry Finn.' Most critics have a problem with Twain's ending of the latter but at least it had one. 'Tom Sawyer Abroad' comes to a grinding halt and leaves one feeling that those old, classic characters have been unfairly and unwillingly exhumed from their noble state for dubious ennoblement in what is basically a humourist's response to Jules Verne. If you liked 'Huckleberry Finn' then that that alone might be a reason to read 'Tom Sawyer Abroad.' Otherwise, it's not worth it.

    Tom Sawyer Abroad

    Tom Sawyer Abroad is an excellent book! It is yet another book about Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Jim. Written by Mark Twain, this book takes Tom, Huck, and Jim across the world. When Tom, Huck, and Jim go look at a flying machine built by a mad scientist the flying machine suddenly takes off with Tom, Huck, Jim, and the scientist. When the scientist falls overboard, Tom, Huck, and Jim are left to steer the machine! This is when the real adventure begins. They travel across oceans and deserts as they try to get back home. If you enjoy Mark Twain books, then this is a must read!
