Tom Sawyer chronicles the life of an orphan boy growing up in 1840’s Missouri along the Mississippi River.  Tom lives with his Aunt Polly and her children, Mary and Sid.  When Tom is ordered to paint the fence as punishment for playing hooky, he tricks his friends into doing the work.  Then he tries and fails to impress Becky Thatcher, the new girl in town.  After he and his friend Huckleberry Finn witness a murder in the graveyard, they swear never to tell anyone, but when the wrong man is charged, Tom doesn’t know what to do.  When Tom finally decides to testify in Muff Potter’s trial, he names Injun Joe as the real murderer.  Injun Joe immediately runs away.  Although concerned about the fugitive, everyone in town heads to MacDougal’s Cave to celebrate the end of the summer.  Tom and Becky get lost in the cave and just as everyone learns of their disappearance, there is word that Injun Joe has been seen in the area. Tom and Becky narrowly avoid confronting him in the cave and escape.  Huck and Tom celebrate by playing hooky on the first day of school.
