Summary:
This is Seelye's revised retelling of the story of Huck Finn. Seelye records the full account of Huck's epic journey the way Huck himself would have told it - unvarnished, unbowdlerized and unexpurgated. The boy's salty humanness, his realistic depiction of sin, sex, slavery, and salvation in the Mississippi Valley of mid-nineteenth-century America, comes through unfiltered by Victorian prudery.
