Tom Sawyer is a boy who is full of adventures. In his world

there is an adventure around every corner. Some of his adventures have

lead him into some bad situations but with his good heart and bright

mind he has gotten out of them. Tom lives with his aunt Polly, his

cousin Mary and his bother Sid.

 

One of the first things to happen in the book is a memorable

one, the painting of the fence. Tom's aunt Polly made Tom paint her

fence on a Saturday as a punishment.  Tom just hated the idea of

having to work on a Saturday while all of the neighborhood could make

fun of and harass him.  After Tom tried to trade some of his

possessions for a few hours of freedom he had a stroke of genius,

instead of him paying people to work for him, he made people pay him

to paint. Tom managed this by telling people that it isn't every day

that you get a chance to paint a fence and he thought it was fun.  He

had people begging him to paint by the time that he was finished his

story. He would have taken every boy in the town's wealth if he had

not run out of paint.

 

On June 17th about the hour of midnight, Tom and his best

friend Huck were out in the grave yard trying to get rid of warts,

when they witnessed a murder by Injun Joe. At the time Muff Potter was

drunk and asleep so Injun Joe blamed the murder him (Muff Potter).

They knew if crazy Injun Joe found out they knew, he would for sure

kill them.  Tom wrote on a  wooden board "Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer

swear to keep mum about this and they wish they may drop down dead in

their tracks if they ever tell and rot", then in their own blood they

signed their initials TS and HF.

 

A few days after that incident Tom, Huck and Joe decided to go

and become pirates because no one cared for their company anymore.

They stole some food and supplies and then they stole a raft and

paddled to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River.  They

stayed and pirated for several days, then they all became so home sick

that they could not bear it anymore.  The next day Tom, Huck, and Joe

showed up for their own funerals and there was much thanks and praise.

 

The next big event in the town was the trial of Muff Potter

for the murder in the graveyard. The whole town believed Injun Joe,

and poor Muff was sent to a temporary jail cell for a   week. At the

end of the week he was to be hung unless some one in court had proved

him innocent. While Muff was in jail temporarily he was not alone.

Every day Tom and Huck would go and talk to him through the jail cell

bars and on occasion bring him food. On the last day of court, to

everyone's surprise they called Tom Sawyer to the stand. Then the man

asked him where he was on the 17th of June he said "In the graveyard".

Then when he asked who he saw do it he said with all his courage he

said "Muff didn't do it. It was Injun Joe!" and with that Injun Joe

jumped out the window and ran away.

 

Tom and Huck decided that they wanted to become rich so they

went to go and find  buried treasure.  Tom and Huck dug under trees

all day and night but found nothing, then Tom said that they should go

and dig for treasure in a haunted house.  They went back two days

later and went to a haunted house.  Both the boys were scared but they

both went inside anyway.  The boys dared each other to go upstairs, so

of course they went up and looked in closets for treasure but found

nothing.  Suddenly the boys heard two men talking and then come

inside.   Both of the boys got down on the floor and then they heard

the voice again, it was Injun Joe.  Injun Joe and the other man had a

bag of money and decided to bury it there.  Tom and Huck could hardly

contain themselves because they would steal it as soon as Injun Joe

left.  Injun Joe was digging a hole with his knife when he hit

something, it was a box of money.  Injun Joe decided to take all of

the treasure and hide it in number two under the cross.  When Injun

Joe and the other man left Tom and Huck were furious because they

thought that all of the treasure was rightfully their's.

 

A few days later Becky had her long awaited picnic, and they

all went to McDougals cave. Tom showed Becky around and while they

were exploring they got lost, with only a small slice of cake to eat

that Tom had shoved in his pocket the day before along with several

candles. When the town saw they were not in church the next morning

they realized that they must have forgotten them. Tom and Becky were

too far down for the search party to find with no food left and no

candles.  Tom and Becky sat by a small stream because they were tired

from exploring and had no light.  By that time Becky had became ill

and it was up to Tom to find the way out.  While Tom was looking for a

way out he ran into Injun Joe who ran off when he herd Tom yell for

help.  Tom ran away also because he feared Injun Joe would kill him.

Tom did find a way out through a small opening that lead out to the

Mississippi River.  Tom went back and got Becky and he lead her out of

the cave and eventually got her home safely.

 

At the same time that Tom was in the cave with Becky, Huck was

watching a tavern where Injun Joe was watching to see if he would lead

him to the treasure.  When Huck has just about given up, Injun Joe and

another man left the tavern with so bags.  Huck followed them to Widow

Douglas' house and listened in on their plan.  Injun Joe was going to

hurt Widow Douglas because of what her deceased husband did to him.

Once Huck had heard the plan he ran to the Welshman's house and he

told the story to him.  Old Welshman and his sons went to Widow

Douglas's house with their guns and had a shootout with Injun Joe and

his partner.  In the end no one was hurt and Injun Joe and his partner

escaped.

 

A few days later Tom was at Becky's house where everyone was

celebrating the return of him and Becky.  Becky's father was talking

with Tom when he mentioned that he had the entrance on the cave closed

off so that no one would ever get lost in it again.  Tom's face went

totally white.  Becky's father asked him what was wrong he said that

Injun Joe was still in the cave.  Not long after all of the men went

to the cave to investigate.  They made the gruesome discovery of Injun

Joe's body.  He had made his way to the gate but he could not get it

unlocked, he had starved to death.  Tom was finally at ease, and now

he was ready to go treasure hunting again.

 

A few days later Tom was allowed to see Huck once again and he

brought him up to date on his adventures.  Tom told Huck that he knew

where the treasure was an now all they had to do was go and get it.

Huck agreed to the plan and the both of the gathered the supplies that

they needed and then stole a raft.  Tom took Huck down the river to

the same place where he had gotten out of the cave before and they

both went inside.  Tom took Huck to the place where he ran into Injun

Joe and the started looking for "number two".  Not after long Tom and

Huck found a roman numeral two written in smoke on the cave wall.

Under the number two there was a cross.  Tom and Huck were ecstatic,

they started to dig and Tom hit some boards.  Tom took the boards out,

and then a ditch was revealed.  Tom and Huck crawled into the ditch

and followed it as it turned into a tunnel.  At the end of the tunnel

there was a cave.  In the cave was the money, some food, guns, and

some blankets and other clothing.  Tom and Huck filled the bags that

they had brought with them with the money and got out of the cave.

Tom and Huck paddled their raft back home and put their money in a

wagon.

 

Tom and Huck then pulled the wagon to Mrs Widow Douglas's

house.  There they were ushered inside by the old Welshman, and were

told to go upstairs and change there cloths.  They did so, and when

they came down stairs they were informed that the party was for Huck

to thank him for saving Widow Douglas' life.  During the party Widow

Douglas said that Huck was going to live with her and he was going to

grow up the way that he should.  Then Tom exploded and said that Huck

did not need Widow Douglas, because he was rich.  At this comment the

room burst into laughter.  Tom said that he and Huck would prove it

and went outside.  When Tom and Huck returned they were carrying two

large bags.  Tom and Huck walked to the table and dumped the bags,

they were full of money.  Everyone was shocked, Tom and Huck explained

their latest adventure and then the money was divided evenly.  Both of

the boy's money was deposited in a bank, and rationed out to them a

dollar and a quarter per week.  This is basically how the story ends.
