Adventures of Tom Sawyer) 在1876年出版，而「哈克历险记」则在1884年出版上市。这些书一直到今天都还被认为是经典之作。这些书不但是很好的故事书，里头还包括了受到白人肯定的具备坚忍特质的非裔美国人角色。
In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a runaway teenager named Huck Finn went floating down the Mississippi River on a raft with an escaped slave named Jim, and with them, Mark Twain's reputation as one of the finest American novelists was confirmed.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known to the world by his pen name of Mark Twain, was born on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri. Twain is best known for his novels set in his boyhood world on the Mississippi River. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, published in 1876, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, published in 1884, are considered classics today. These books not only told a good story; they also included African Americans who were admired by whites for their strength of character.
