Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Young Huck Finn has no mother and his father is
a brutal drunkard. To escape his father's cruel tyranny he fakes his own
death and runs away. As a homeless waif he travels along the Mississippi
Valley by foot and by raft encountering a variety of unsavory and
humorous characters who involve him in their dubious misadventures.
This story, rich in character, humor, and the adventurous frontier
experience of the Mississippi, vividly recreates the world, the people,
and the language that Mark Twain knew and loved from his own years on
the riverboats. The text is unabridged and includes 148 illustrations
from the original 1884 edition.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910) is better known by the pen name
Mark Twain. He was born in Florida, Missouri and grew up along the
Mississippi Valley. Although he left school at the age of 12, when his
father died, he was eventually awarded honorary degrees from Yale
University, the University of Missouri, and Oxford University. His
career encompassed such varied occupations as printer, miner,
Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, travel writer, novelist, and
publisher. His vivid imagination, keen sense of humor, and sharp wit
resulted in some of the most beloved classics of American literature.
His novels include such favorites as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper,
and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
