The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature. Although the society it satirized was already history at the time of publication, the book was quite controversial, and has remained so to this day.

as stumped, and set still. I was most ready to cry; but all at once I thought of a way, and so I offered them Miss Watson--they could kill her. Everybody said:

"Oh, she'll do. That's all right. Huck can come in."

Then they all stuck a pin in their fingers to get blood to sign with, and I made my mark on the paper.

"Now," says Ben Rogers, "what's the line of business of this Gang?"

"Nothing only robbery and murder," Tom said.

"But who are we going to rob?--houses, or cattle, or--"

Reviews

Average Rating of 4.9 from 9 reviews: *****

It is a widespread belief that boys who are stubborn to the extreme might end up becoming public nuisances. However, this is not the case of our hero Huckleberry whose pranks only prepare him for a life of ability in the future.Tom Sawyer had a friend in real life who had all or most of all the features of Huckleberry and the last time we see that friend in his essays, that friend was already the mayor of a little fishing town in mississipi. I write as an objective commentator from the yaba area of Lagos state and i as a matter of fact know a lot of boys in the neighbourhood who have the traits of our little hero.
In a society where ills cannot be construed into good, what we have is a rot that spurts from necessarily not rotten roots. In every stubborn boy, there is a brave leader!
