More About Mark Twain
Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835 and died in Redding, Connecticut, in 1910. In his person and in his pursuits, he was a man of extraordinary contrasts. Although he left school at twelve when his father died, he was eventually awarded honorary degrees from Yale University, the University of Missouri, and Oxford University. His career encompassed such varied occupations as printer, Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, travel writer, and publisher. He made fortunes from his writing but toward the end of his life he had to resort to lecture tours to pay his debts. He was hot-tempered, profane, and sentimental--and also pessimistic, cynical, and tortured by self-doubt. His nostalgia helped produce some of his best books. He lives in American letters as a great artist, the writer whom William Dean Howells called "the Lincoln of our literature." A graduate of Harvard College, Everett Emerson was an Alumni Distinguished Professor, Emeritus, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He was the author or editor of many books, including Mark Twain: A Literary Life. Emerson also taught in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, Louisiana, and California. He was the founder of the Mark Twain Circle, and for twenty years edited the journal Early American Literature.
Mark Twain lived in Hannibal, in the state of Missouri. Mark Twain was born in 1835 and died in 1910.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tom Sawyer (Bring the Classics to Life: Level 2)?
Not as Expected Apr 29, 2010
This book is not an abridged children's version as I had originally thought. It is a reading/workbook for children. It has vocabulary words, definitions, and a workbook section. It does have different parts of the story for the children to read, but it's not a chapter book. In my opinion, it's the deluxe cliff notes version of Tom Sawyer. I will keep it and use it, but I plan on purchasing Tom Sawyer in it's entirety. I plan on taking my children (ages 8, 6, 3, 1) to Hannibal, MO this summer, so this book will at least give the kids some idea of who Tom is.
