Summary
Mark Twain’s masterpiece and the greatest of American novels Tom Sawyer’s best friend, Huckleberry Finn, takes center stage in this classic tale of boyhood adventure. Fleeing his drunken father and the civilizing influence of the Widow Douglas, Huck and the runaway slave Jim pilot a log raft down the mighty Mississippi River. The colorful characters and dramatic situations they encounter along the way—from bloodthirsty thieves lurking in an abandoned steamboat to a pair of aristocratic conmen dead set on robbing Arkansas blind—draw the two escapees closer together, until Huck is forced to make a fateful choice between Jim’s freedom and his own salvation. One of the first major novels written in an American vernacular, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an essential part of the national identity. Its sophisticated treatment of serious themes such as the evils of slavery, the individual versus society, and the conflicting impulses of human nature, make it as vital and important today as when it was first published more than one hundred and thirty years ago.
