Summary

The orphan Tom Sawyer, raised by his aunt, is never out of trouble for long. A mischievous, charming boy (not to mention genius at escaping from trouble), Tom's adventures involve many unwitting bystanders. From one moment to the next, the boy could change into a pirate, or ship's captain - when he's not trying to win Becky Thatcher for a sweetheart, of course. Tom is also a friend of Twain's other beloved boy-hero, Huckleberry Finn.

    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

    First published in 1884, Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a masterpiece of world literature. Garrison Keillor's adaptation approaches this classic with the respect and affection it deserves. 
    A Grammy Nominee. 
     Narrated by Huck himself in his artless vernacular, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn tells of Huck's voyage down the Mississippi with a runaway slave named Jim. As the two journey downstream on a raft, Huck's vivid descriptions capture the sights, smells, sounds, and rhythms of life on the great river. As they encounter traveling actors, con men, lynch mobs, thieves, and Southern gentility, his shrewd comments reveal the dark side of human nature. By the end of the story, Huck has learned about the dignity and worth of human life—and Twain has exposed the moral blindness of the "respectable" slave-holding society in which he lives. Huckleberry Finn was Twain's greatest creation.  
     "This is an abridgement of Mark Twain's book, keeping the parts I loved as a boy—Huck's story, the big river at night, the boasting of the raftsmen, the Duke and the Dauphin, the lynching, the feud—and lopping off the last third of the book, where Tom Sawyer comes in and makes a big production of freeing Jim. I had Huck free him instead. If you enjoy the reading, I am sure Mr. Twain will forgive me." —Garrison Keillor

He will receive one-third of the entire fortune if he can find two other men whose name is also Garrideb.Now that the two have made contact, they only have to track down a third Garrideb, and each will receive $5 million.

    Cyril of Alexandria was the leading voice of Nicene orthodoxy in the Christological controversies between Constantinople (381) and Chalcedon (451). Assuming the mantle of the Cappadotian fathers, he answered the auguments of Nestorius who had changed the liturgy of Constantinople by altering the prayer which referred to Mary as the Mother of God. Although he died seven years before the Council of Chalcedon, his writings and formulations heavily influenced not only Chalcedon, but the entire trajectory of orthodox christological thought.
