Overview
-

Huckleberry Finn would rather be free than ‘sivilized’. Adventures with Tom Sawyer made Huck rich--but 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?
