Born in 1914, Dorathy V. Fry became in due time the greatest female produced by the Pennsylvania German culture. She was raised in the dialect-speaking home of her grandparents, which enabled her to speak knowingly of daily life on a PA German farm. She earned her teaching degree from Millersville State Normal School and later taught at Fairview, Fetter’s Clay, and Ephrata Schools in Lancaster Co., Pa. She was a major contributor to the publication “Pennsylvania German Words in Context.” The author regularly visited with Dot Fry and Dot would tell stories about her life; these taped interviews have been transcribed in this volume. The stories are printed in PA Dutch and English. (415pp. color illus. Center for PA German Studies, 2014.)

Tom Sawyer falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get "engaged" by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been "engaged" previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness a trio of body snatchers, Dr. Robinson, Muff Potter and Injun Joe, getting into a fight. Die Abenteuer des Tom Sawyer ist eine typische Lausbubengeschichte und spielt in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts in dem fiktiven Ort St. Petersburg in Missouri am Ufer des Mississippi. Der Waisenjunge Tom lebt bei seiner Tante Polly, zusammen mit seinem Halbbruder Sid, seiner Cousine Mary und dem schwarzen Sklaven Jim. Sid ist brav und verpetzt Tom bei jeder Gelegenheit. Tom hingegen schwänzt gern die Schule, prügelt sich und treibt sich mit seinem besten Freund Huckleberry Finn herum. Dieser hat keinen festen Wohnsitz; seine Mutter ist tot, sein Vater ist ein stadtbekannter Trinker.
