By Mark Twain

En «Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer» Mark Twain recreo una época de cercas enjalbegadas y picnics dominicales en los angeles parroquia, cuando el trasiego de l. a. vida desbordaba el Mississippi y l. a. esclavitud estaba a l. a. orden del día; eran los años del «antebellum», antes de que l. a. guerra de Secesión transformara los angeles historia de Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, mientras Tom Sawyer forma una banda de piratas para ir en busca de un tesoro enterrado, o cuando esta en casa compartiendo un brebaje con el gato de su tía Polly, lo que se proyecta no es solo el mundo rural de los estado sureños en el siglo XIX, sino los angeles ilusión de una infancia eterna. Esta edición, en una traducción de Simón Santainés, se abre con una introducción del reconocido experto en Mark Twain R. Kent Rasmussen, donde defiende l. a. capacidad del autor de fascinar a lectores de cualquier edad a través de una mirada irónica que contrasta con las fechorías de Tom Sawyer, uno de los personajes mas emblemáticos de l. a. literatura estadounidense.
