Considered the great American novel! Lewis Carroll Shelf Award Winner, Great Books of the Western World, #23 on The 100 Best Novels Written in English, #31 on The 100 Greatest Novels of All Time.

A combination of adventure story and social satire, Twain's novel is considered by many to be the quintessential American Novel.

Huckleberry Finn - the outcast of the Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri, and son of a drunkard, habitual truant, smoker and liar - is going to be civilized by the widow and her sister, Miss Watson, even if it kills him! Though he chafes under their regime, bit by bit Huck reforms. When Huck's Pap returns from downriver somewhere, all the widow's good work is undone. Pap takes Huck off to a cabin in the woods and then, one day when Pap leaves Huck alone and heads to town to see about getting his hands on Huck's $6,000.00 (Huck's share of the money he and Tom Sawyer took from the robbers in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer).

Huck escapes from his abusive father, Joining forces with Jim, a runaway slave. Together the two fugitives float down the Mississippi River, encountering trouble at every turn and conflicts between societal expectations and their own inclinations and experiences. Huck finds himself having to choose between what society expects him to do and what his heart tells him is right.

    Slang was hard to understand

    Huck Finn was hard for my daughter (because of being raised overseas, the slang language). The study guide helped focus and understand.

    My son has just started

    Posted by Kathy W. on 3rd Oct 2014

    My son has just started the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Study Guide after completing The Scarlet Letter. I have been very pleased with the ease of ordering and immediate availability of the guide to use interactively, or copied to a notebook. I also appreciate the introduction, author biography, and historical background provided prior to the first chapter. These Progeny Press guides have been very helpful to me as a homeschool mom/teacher of a high schooler trying to pull an American Literature course together at the last minute! I look forward to ordering more guides to complete our course this year. Thank for providing a quality product!
