Overview

Chafed by the "sivilized" restrictions of his foster home, and weary of his drunkard father's brutality, 14 year-old Huck Finn fakes his own death and sets off on a raft down the Mississippi River. He is soon joined by Jim, an escaped slave. Together, they experience a series of rollicking adventures that have amused readers, young and old, for over a century. The fugitives become close friends as they weather storms together aboard the raft and spend idyllic days swimming, frying catfish suppers, and enjoying their independence.

Interviews

To all readers: This is a faithful adaptation of Twain's original words. Some will argue the use of the Twain's description for Jim, the runaway slave, is no longer relevant. The point of Twain's application of the term is that he placed a clear emphasis on the bitterness he felt about a society that was made up of moral cowards. In the end, the person with the greatest redeeming qualities is the one who bears the brunt of society's ignorance.
“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” Mark Twain in The Art of Authorship pp 87-88 (1890)
