"Filled with the folk humor and storytelling charm that have made Tom and Huck so popular for so many decades." --Audiobook News Service, Spring-Summer 2005
Adrienne Miller, Esquire
“Bravo to Hesperus…. These titles have been largely lost to the general reading public… exquisitely cool little volumes.”
Benjamin Schwarz, The Atlantic Monthly
“Hesperus Press is finding, and often newly translating, astounding forgotten works.”
Carlin Romano, The Chronicle Review of Higher Education
“The Hesperus library… serves as a lasting inoculation against industrially canned literary judgment.”
Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
“A maverick publisher revives literature with modern touches.”

Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - WELL, it was the next spring after me and Tom Sawyer set our old nigger Jim free, the time he was chained up for a runaway slave down there on Tom's uncle Silas's farm in Arkansaw. The frost was working out of the ground, and out of the air, too, and it was getting closer and closer onto barefoot time every day; and next it would be marble time, and next mumbletypeg, and next tops and hoops, and next kites, and then right away it would be summer and going in a-swimming. It just makes a boy homesick to look ahead like that and see how far off summer is. Yes, and it sets him to sighing and saddening around, and there's something the matter with him, he don't know what. But anyway, he gets out by himself and mopes and thinks; and mostly he hunts for a lonesome place high up on the hill in the edge of the woods, and sets there and looks away off on the big Mississippi down there a-reaching miles and miles around the points where the timber looks smoky and dim it's so far off and still, and everything's so solemn it seems like everybody you've loved is dead and gone, and you 'most wish you was dead and gone too, and done with it all.
