This file includes: the Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer Abroad, and Tom Sawyer, Detective. According to Wikipedia: Tom Sawyer is the protagonist and title character of the Mark Twain novel the Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). He appears in three other novels by Twain: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894), and Tom Sawyer, Detective (1896)... the fictional character's name may have derived from a real-life Tom Sawyer with whom Twain was acquainted in San Francisco, California, while Twain was employed as a reporter at the San Francisco Call. the character himself is an amalgam of three boys Twain knew while growing up. the name Sawyer is derived from the Mississippi River pilot's term for a tree in the bed of the river with its branches reaching the surface and moving up and down with the current. Twain was a river pilot at one time, and many of the adventures of his character, Tom Sawyer, are connected with the Mississippi River, and partly derive from this experience.
