The Widow Douglas is doing her best to civilize Huckleberry Finn, but it just isn't working. Wearing clean clothes, going to school, and having a hot meal waiting for him when he gets home are becoming boring and tedious. So, to make his life more interesting Huck sets sail on his raft for a secluded island. When he arrives he finds he's not the only one who has decided to live there. On the river, he encounters thieves, a flood, con men, violent shootouts, family feuds and much more.
