Short novel by Clemens, published in 1894 under his pseudonym Mark Twain.
As a sequel to “all them adventures” in the book bearing his name, Huck Finn tells of further exploits with Tom Sawyer and Jim, the former slave, in a story that concerns a balloon voyage to the Sahara and Near East, involving a mid-Atlantic storm, encounters with Bedouins and wild lions, and a final takeoff for the return home from Mt. Sinai. Tom's romancing and knowledge, Huck's common sense, and Jim's superstitions are revealed by various incidents.
