"Tom Sawyer, the Black Avenger of the Spanish Main. Name your names."
"Huck Finn the Red-Handed, and Joe Harper the Terror of the Seas." Tom had furnished these titles, from his favorite literature..... They shoved off, presently, Tom in command, Huck at the after oar and Joe at the forward."
~The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Adventure is always better with your best friends. In the book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer, Joe Harper and Huck Fin are three great friends that always enjoy a wild adventure. The three comrades go on a wild adventure to a nearby island, relying on each other as their only help. In chapter thirteen, The three companions paddle to Jackson Island as they pursue their life of piracy. All three of the friends wanted to leave their awful and dismal lives, to go on an adventure with a goal of a new life. They left everything they had behind as they left for the island one gloomy night, planning to get their supplies from their job. The friends knew the only way to have a successful adventure was to stay as best companions. They arrived, had a small feast and talked about the adventure that they were about to begin.
As the two boys walked sorrowing along, they made a new compact to stand by each other and be brothers and never separate till death relieved them of their troubles. Then they began to lay their plans. Joe was for being a hermit, and living on crusts in a remote cave, and dying, some time, of cold and want and grief; but after listening to Tom, he conceded that there were some conspicuous advantages about a life of crime, and so he consented to be a pirate.”~[The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Chapter 13]
Tom and Joe, express their youth in many ways. Tom and Joe prove their youth by re-enacting many stories. Although they both are doing some adult jobs, they always go back to their youth. They show their youthfulness by going into the woods and pretending to be the real characters from the story Robin Hood.
“I, indeed! I am Robin Hood, as thy caitiff carcase soon shall know."
"Then art thou indeed that famous outlaw? Right gladly will I dispute with thee the passes of the merry wood. Have at thee!"
They took their lath swords, dumped their other traps on the ground, struck a fencing attitude, foot to foot, and began a grave, careful combat, "two up and two down.” ~[Chapter 8, The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer]
Tom, Joe and Huck always spend as much time together as they possibly can to go on adventures. They travel through woods to express their youth by re-enacting stories, but they also go to other towns and islands as best friends. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a well crafted book that captures the powers of youth and adventures with friends. Throughout the book Twain writes the book in a way that is relatable to almost any person. He uses vivid description to explain the important themes of youth and adventures with friends.
