Huck Out West, Robert Coover (W. W. Norton)

Celebrated American novelist Coover (The Public Burning) is back with a sequel to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, picking up the story of Huck where Mark Twain left off. In Coover’s account, Huck meets pretty girls, gets in bar fights, works on cattle drives, joins a Native American tribe, and finds himself in the middle of the 1876 Gold Rush.
