“Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” or in more
recent editions, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” is commonly named among
the Great American Novels. The work is among the first in major American literature
to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color
regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry “Huck” Finn, the
narrator of two other Twain novels, “Tom Sawyer Abroad” and “Tom Sawyer,
Detective” and a friend of Tom Sawyer. It is a direct sequel to “The Adventures
of Tom Sawyer.”
The book is noted for its colorful description
of people and places along the Mississippi River, set in a Southern antebellum
society that had ceased to exist over 20 years before the work was published.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known by his pen
name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher and
lecturer. He was lauded as the “greatest humorist this country has produced,”
and William Faulkner called him “the father of American literature.”

Area Trailhead at Delaware Canal State Park, Raubsville. After walking I
grabbed a bite at the Canalside Cup for the first time and it was great. I also
enjoyed eating outside as strains of “Earth Angel” and other ‘50s hits wafted
through the air. My only complaint is I didn’t hear any Elvis Presley tunes
during my visit, maybe next time!
