The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Author:Mark Twain Huckleberry Finn is Twain's masterpiece. The adventures of Huck and Jim - white orphan boy and black slave - who are fugitive partners down the Mississippi River speaks to schoolchild and scholar, and novelist and ordinary reader alike.
I guess this particular story has engendered more pros and cons than other classics have. But laying all that aside, it is a great adventure with some really important thoughts. A brief biography of Samuel Clemens closes this book.
