In 1885, while The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was becoming one of the best-selling American classics of modern times, Mark Twain began this sequel in which Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer, and Jim head west on the trail of two white girls kidnapped by Sioux warriors. Fifteen thousand words into the work, Twain stopped in the middle of a sentence, never to go back. The unfinished story sat on dusty shelves for more than a hundred years until author Lee Nelson decided to finish it, using Twain's incomplete manuscripts. The result is a story of adventure, wit, and wisdom, with readers saying they can't tell where Twain leaves off and Nelson begins. Tom and Huck seek true love while tramping through Indian country, stealing from the U. S. Army, facing a gunfight and hangman's noose in California, and learning the hard way that "book Injuns and real Injuns ain't the same."
"The story is done well, capturing the spirit and adventure of Tom and Huck. Grover Gardner tells the tale in fine form, using the dialect made famous by Twain, and pacing the plot just as nicely."-AudioFile
