Meet Tom Swayer's best friend, Huckleberry Finn. All Huck wants in his life is adventure. But the well-meaning folks of St Petersburg, Missouri-like Widow Douglas and Judge Thatcher-are determined to 'civilise' him! Bored with his mundane life, Huck runs away and sets off on a whirlwind journey across the River Mississippi with a runaway slave, Jim. And it begins. Huck and Jim embark on their exciting escapade; a trip in which they come across many interesting characters- murderers, con artists, do-gooders and what-nots. But how long will Huck and Jim's luck last? Mark Twain threads together a tale of adventure layered with satire on racism, American way of life and morality in the 19th - century. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a must-read classic.
