In 1876 the world was introduced to Tom Sawyer, a boy who lives by the great Mississippi River, who loves Becky Thatcher and who is friendly with Huck Finn. Tom's adventures on the river, whitewashing the fence, encountering Injun Joe and trying to impress Becky have become an important part of American culture. Twain did something very new with this novel and also reflected his own youth.
