Huckleberry Finn

Huckleberry Finn is the protagonist of Mark Twain's famous book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck also appears in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

A huckleberry is a type of plant that bears blueberry-like fruit.

Huck is the son of a vagrant drunkard. He enjoys lazing about and joining Tom Sawyer in adventures. At the end of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huck is adopted by the Widow Douglas for saving her life. In the book's sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck is kidnapped by his father, but soon manages to escape; the rest of the book tells of his search for a way to avoid his father until the climax.
