Whereas, in Huckleberry Finn, Tom’s “adventures” are mostly spurious fictions invented by him, in Tom’s own Adventures they are quite real (if, once again, not realistic), from close brushes with death to finding actual treasure while searching for mythical booty. In Huck’s book, his adventures are real, being once again hair-breadth (and raising) escapes from death and disaster, and perhaps the most dangerous of all his adventures results from Tom Sawyer’s ridiculous, Dumas-inspired scheme for freeing Jim, a made-up “adventure” that is stopped by some very real bullets.
