One of America's first great novels, let this classic story come alive as you listen. Meet Huckleberry Finn, an orphan who is taken in by Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson, who intend to teach him religion and proper manners. Huck soon runs away on an adventure to help the widow's slave, Jim, escape up the Mississippi River to freedom. By allowing Huck to tell his own story, Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn addresses America's painful contradiction of racism and segregation in a 'free' and 'equal' society in the South after the Civil War.
