- THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN
DetailsHuck is back . . . Taken for a son by Widow Douglas; struggling against the society and its attempts to civilize him. Escaping his alcoholic father by faking his death, we join him as he voyages down the Mississippi River seeking liberation. Finding his way to Jacksons island he meets Jim, Mrs. Watsons runaway slave. What happens as they team up, capture a raft, and encounter a seemingly haphazard array of people and situations? Immersed in deadly violence, finding tranquility only on the river with Jim, will Huckleberry Finn find the freedom and independence he is seeking? A direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, it traces Hucks moral development as he moves from having an unthinking acceptance of received knowledge and values to developing an independently achieved understanding of what is right. A scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, Twains The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn defines the American Dream of young heroes. Sometimes ironic, sometimes mocking, sometimes boyish and exuberant, it is named among the Great American Novels.

A gifted raconteur, distinctive humorist, and irascible moralist, he transcended the apparent limitations of his origins to become a popular public figure and one of America’s best and most beloved writers.
