Huckleberry Finn

In the novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Jim and Huck escape down the Mississippi river in search of freedom and adventure, and along the way encounter many different kinds of people, families, and societies. They visit different towns and villages along the Mississippi, and find out that the characters of the people they meet are often violent, dishonest, or easily cheated out of their money.

But, despite the airs of sophistication and culture that they put on, the Grangerfords are nonetheless gracious and generous to Huck and offer him a home with them as long as he would like. Unfortunately, Huck is unable to take the family up on their offer for long, because he soon becomes aware of the conflicts surrounding him. He discovers that the Grangerford's are involved in a long time feud with a neighboring family called the Shepardson's, and it is not long before blood is shed and Huck's friend Buck Grangerford is shot dead. At this shocking realization of the cruelty and violence of the frontier, Huck flees the from the Grangerford's, but also from what he is unable to describe, a vision of himself participating in senseless cruelty and destruction.
