When I got there it was all still and Sunday-like, and hot and sunshiny; the hands was gone to the fields; and there was that kind of faint dronings of bugs and lies in the air that makes it seem so lonesome and like everybody’s dead and gone …
In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, a thirteen-year-old boy, Huck, is in search of adventure on the beautiful shores of the Mississippi River.
When Huck escapes kidnapping by his own drunken father, he decides to find a canoe to shove off down the river, leaving behind his life of confinement and civilization. Soon Huck comes across Jim, Miss Watson's slave. While traveling down the river, Huck and Jim have many adventures, but more importantly, during many long talks, they become the best of friends, both in search of freedom. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is regarded by many critics and scholars to be the first “Great American novel”.
Audie award-winner Robin Miles narrates for a unique female voice on Twain's classic story. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Seasons Edition--Summer) is one of three titles available in June 2020. The summer season audio collection also will include Persuasion and The Wonderland Collection.
