Huckleberry Finn would rather be free than 'sivilized'. Adventures with Tom Sawyer made Huck rich--but his Pap is a violent drunk and the broad Mississippi is the road to liberty. Huck's raft can carry him and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, to safety. When they lose their way one foggy night, though, they are headed downriver into dangerous territory. How can one small boy pilot his way through a land of mortal feuds, lynch mobs and tricksters? When life and freedom are at risk, how can Huck figure out the difference between wrong and right? Real Reads are accessible texts designed to support the literacy development of primary and lower secondary age children while introducing them to the riches of our international literary heritage. Each book is a retelling of a work of great literature from one of the world's greatest cultures, fitted into a 64-page book, making classic stories, dramas and histories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts, to language students wanting access to other cultures, and to adult readers who are unlikely ever to read the original versions.
