Huckleberry Finn would rather be free than "sivilized."
Adventures with Tom Sawyer made Huck richbut his Pap is a violent drunk and the broad Mississippi is the road to liberty. Huck's raft can carry him and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, to safety.
When they lose their way one foggy night, though, they are headed downriver into dangerous territory. How can one small boy pilot his way through a land of mortal feuds, lynch mobs and tricksters?
When life and freedom are at risk, how can Huck figure out the difference between wrong and right?
