Summary
At the end of Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn", on the eve of the Civil War, Huck and Tom "light out for the Territory" to escape "sivilization." Huck hires himself out to "whosoever." It is a time of great adventure, but also one of hard truths and harder choices. Only Huck's sympathetic and gently comical voice can make it somehow bearable
Summary
In the author's interpretation of what happened after Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Huck joins the Pony Express, scouts for both sides in the Civil War, joins a bandit gang, finds an ill-fated pal in a Lakota tribe and finds himself in the Black Hills just ahead of the 1876 Gold Rush, in a book that sees the return of Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher and Jim
