Progeny Press: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

A combination of adventure story and social satire, Twain's novel is considered by many to be the quintessential American Novel.

Huckleberry Finn - the outcast of the Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri, and son of a drunkard, habitual truant, smoker and liar - is going to be civilized by the widow and her sister, Miss Watson, even if it kills him! Though he chafes under their regime, bit by bit Huck reforms. When Huck's Pap returns from downriver somewhere, all the widow's good work is undone. Pap takes Huck off to a cabin in the woods and then, one day when Pap leaves Huck alone and heads to town to see about getting his hands on Huck's $6,000.00 (Huck's share of the money he and Tom Sawyer took from the robbers in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer).

Huck escapes from his abusive father, Joining forces with Jim, a runaway slave. Together the two fugitives float down the Mississippi River, encountering trouble at every turn and conflicts between societal expectations and their own inclinations and experiences. Huck finds himself having to choose between what society expects him to do and what his heart tells him is right.
