Summary
Mark Twain created one of America's best-loved fictional characters in Huckleberry Finn. Recounting the exploits of the imaginative adolescent as he and the runaway slave, Jim, raft down the Mississippi River, Twain ultimately addresses far deeper themes - man's inhumanity to man and the hypocrisy of conventional values

Summary
Rather than be 'sivilized' by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn sets off with Jim, an escaped slave, to find freedom on the Mississippi river. With the law on their tail, they navigate a world of robbers, slave hunters and con men, and Huck must choose between what society says is right and his own burgeoning understanding of Jim's friendship and humanity, in a razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that is one of the most important of all American novels.
