    Mark Twain's great story of an imaginative boy's adventures in a small town on the Mississippi River. As usual, Tom Sawyer and his pal Huck Finn were only out looking for fun. They never dreamed they'd witness a murder! And that isn't Tom's only problem.

Floating on a raft down the Mississippi with Jim, an escaping slave, Lemmon's Huck finds adventure, danger, and a cast of characters who are both menacing and hilarious.
