    The adventures of Huckleberry Finn

    Twain, Mark

    Tells of his voyage down the Mississippi with a runaway slave named Jim. As the two journey downstream on a raft, Huck's vivid descriptions capture the sights, smells, sounds, and rhythms of life on the great river. As they encounter traveling actors, con men, lynch mobs, thieves, and Southern gentility, his shrewd comments reveal the dark side of human nature. By the end of the story, Huck has learned about the dignity and worth of human life and Twain has exposed the moral blindness of the "respectable" slave-holding society in which he lives.

    The Blithedale romance

    Hawthorne, Nathaniel 1804-1864.

    A tale of failed possibilities and multiple personal betrayals as it explores the contrasts between what characters espouse and what they actually experience in an "ideal" community. The theme of unrealized sexual possibilies serves as a counterpoint to the other failures at Blithedale: clas and sex distinctions are not eradicated, and communal work on the farm proves personally unrewarding and economically disastrous.

    Brian's hunt

    Paulsen, Gary

    Millions of readers of the Brian series (Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter, and Brian's Return) know that Brian Robeson is at home in the Canadian wilderness. He has stood up to the challenge of surviving alone in the north woods. Brian is camping alone on a lake in the woods when he finds a dog that is wounded and whimpering. Who or what injured the dog? As Brian cares for her, he worries about his Cree friends, who live north of his camp. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly. With his new companion at his side, he sets out to learn what happened. He sets out on the hunt.

    Brian's return

    Paulsen, Gary

    As millions of readers of the Brian series (Hatchet, The River, and Brian's Winter) know, Brian Robeson survived alone in the wilderness by finding solutions to extraordinary challenges. But now that he's back in civilization, he can't find a way to make sense of high school life. He feels disconnected, more isolated than he did alone in the north woods. The answer is to return, to "go back in," for only in the wilderness can Brian discover his true path in life, and where he belongs.

    The deerslayer

    Cooper, James Fenimore

    The Deerslayer is the first of James Fenimore Cooper's Leathrestocking Tales, and it introduces Natty Bumppo, the Deerslayer of the title, and the Mohican Chief Chingachgook. The action takes place in upstate New York during the French and Indian wars of the 1740s. The young frontiersman Natty Bumppo and his friend Hurry Harry go to the rescue of the trapper Thomas Hutter and his daughters, whose floating fort on Lake Glimmerglass is under attack by the Iroquois. The plot twists and turns, and the exciting actions and the romantic interest of this historical adventure have made it a firm favorite with generations of readers. Cooper's evocation of the simple values of frontier life, combined with his mastery of the straightforward adventure story established him in the forefront of American writers.
