By Thomas Bailey Aldrich

“No one else seems to have thought of telling the story of a boy’s life with so great a desire to show what a boy’s life is, and with so little purpose of teaching what it should be; certainly no one else has thought of doing this for the American Boy.” — William Dean Howells, 1870 This humorous, poignant yarn of one lad’s adventures became the inspiration for Twain’s Tom Sawyer and many others. This newly typeset, highly readable edition includes over 60 illustrations by A. B. Frost, the foremost illustrator of Aldrich’s time. This IS NOT a facsimile!
