||"I wish I could go on a raft down the river like Huck does. He has so many adventures. Some of them are rather horrid." Tina, 11
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?
