Widely considered one of the greatest American novels, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
tells the story of Huck Finn and his companion, the slave Jim, as they journey down the Mississippi river, after running away from Huck’s alcoholic father and Jim’s owners.
As they travel, they encounter a floating house, feuding families and cunning grifters, but more importantly Huck gets to know Jim and regard him as a friend and equal, overcoming the racial prejudices of the time, in a landmark narrative which poignantly addresses the issues of growing up and finding freedom.
"The best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since." Ernest Hemingway
