Overview

* Beautifully illustrated with delightful sketches from early editions, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the enormously popular sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It follows the fortunes of Huck, a young lad who escapes from his drunken father and teams up with a runaway slave for a series of entertaining escapades along the Mississippi River. Considered a powerful commentary on racism as well as being the first Great American Novel to be written in the vernacular, it has long been the focus of intense literary interest, yet most readers will enjoy it simply for the captivating story and delightful characters.

* This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is enhanced with images carefully selected by our team of professional editors.
