One Saturday afternoon Tom wanted to have an adventure
because he didn’t want to think about Injun Joe. He went 
to Huck and said, “I’m going to look for treasure. Do you 
want to come with me?” 
Tom Sawyer loves adventures. He has a lot of adventures 
at home, at school, and with his friends. He has one 
adventure in a cave. But why is he there? What does he 
see in the cave? And why is he afraid? 
Mark Twain (1835-1910) is a famous American writer. 
His name was Samuel Clemens. Young Samuel lived in 
Hannibal, Missouri, a small town on the Mississippi River. 
He loved the river and he liked watching the big boats
on it. 
Samuel loved adventures. He worked on boats on the 
Mississippi River for two years. Then he went to Nevada. 
He looked for treasure, but he didn’t find it. He worked for 
a newspaper there. His stories were in the name of Mark 
Twain, and people loved them. 
Later, Samuel lived in New York. His book 
Adventures of Tom Sawyer 
(1876) is about a young boy in 
a small town in the 1800s. Huck Finn is his friend. 
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn 
(1884) is about Huck’s 
adventures. These two books are very famous. 
Today, many people visit Hannibal because they want to 
see Mark Twain’s home and the Mark Twain Cave, the 
cave in 
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
