Adventures of Huckleberry Finn tells of Huck Finn's unlikely comradery with a slave named Jim. The boy is running from an abusive father, the man is running to freedom, and at first the Mississippi River seems a sure path to deliverance for the both of them. But, ready or not, the river brings them steamboats and slavecatchers, predatory con men, feuding families of the Old South, treasure, and very few friends. Huck comes to realize that civilization might be even harder to navigate than the Great River itself.
"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn."
~ Ernest Hemingway
