 –          Mark Twain ‘Samuel Langhorne Clemens’ (Nov 30, 1835 – Apr 21, 1910)

A somber undercurrent flows through the high humor and unabashed nostalgia of the novel, however, for beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality—base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.
