Description

In the 1840s, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the fictional Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment all of the next day. At first, Tom is disheartened by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He trades the treasures he got by tricking his friends into whitewashing the fence for tickets given out in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses, which can be used to claim a Bible as a prize. He received enough tickets to be given the Bible. However, in response to a question to show off his knowledge, he incorrectly answers that the first disciples were David and Goliath.<br>

    At around chapter 25, this copy of the book jumps back to a much earlier part of the story for a couple of before going back for the conclusion skipping chunks along the way.

    Story is great—but you won’t get to read the whole thing with this download. Starting with Chapter 26 or so it goes back and reprints previous chapters, and it isn’t corrected until around 29. A bunch of the story is missing as a result.
  • Bad transcription

    Chapters 25-28 have the wrong text in them, repeating text from earlier in the book. Various bits of formatting, like italics and font differences, are missing.
