In 1885, while The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was becoming one of the bestselling 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 US 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.”

    " I enjoyed this book a lot; however, I have a hard time believing that this is where Mark Twain was headed with this story. Still a fun read. "

    " Enjoying this, but it's also very negative. I realize that's part of the humor in it - each chapter finds Huck in a deeper fix, but you have to have a certain frame of mind to read of the slaughtering of families and the dismemberment of people and still be able to laugh at Huck's next dilemma. "

    " I read this for a book club and glad I did. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Although I have enjoyed Lee Nelson's other books so not a huge surprise that I would like this one too. Great writer, full of action and suspense. Should've been a 3.5 for me. "

    " Mark Twain is one of my favorite authors. This book was very different as it is a variety of unfinished stories so they abruptly end and you just have to imagine the ending Mark Twain would have given it. "

About the Author
Author Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
