Description

Made with Horween leather, tanned in Chicago since 1905. 

Mark Twain made him famous in his books, but nobody is really sure who Tom Sawyer is. Some say he was based on a fireman of the same name known to the novelist, whose adventures he would faithfully record in his notebook. Twain said he’d based the young boy on two other men he knew, and on his creator. Later he said he’d totally made young Tom up altogether. But Mark Twain was a fictional character himself, the penname for Samuel Clemens. One thing’s for sure in this confusing literary hall of smoke and mirrors: if nobody had written him down, Tom Sawyer would never have existed as a classic American literary creation. Who will your own notebook-recorded creations be based on? I’ll bet you can’t wait to find out.
