Additional Book Details

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.
