Classic adventure yarn set in the American South. Huck Finn yearns for freedom. He’s lectured by well-meaning guardians and beaten by his drunken father. So he fakes his own murder and takes off down the Mississippi in a stolen canoe. He runs into Jim, a runaway slave, and together they encounter murderers, con men, feuding families and freak weather conditions.
Huck is a beguiling narrator with a troubled conscience. Should he help Jim escape or turn him in? Huck’s wavering moral compass exposes the values of the time: a time when one man’s life was the property of another.
