Amazon.com description: Product Description: Dan Walker answers the questions Mark Twain avoided: What if Huck really carries out his promise, at the end of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, to "light out for the Territory" and is caught up, as he surely would be, in the national crises of Manifest Destiny and the Civil War? Twain himself got sixty-two pages into his own sequel and quit. Why? Was he bored? Or was he afraid of the implications? Would the choices of a real maturity--of love and war--be harder to finesse than those of childhood? What if Huck, Tom, Becky, and the rest had to make the kind of hard choices many Americans had to make when history called? For the Boy who once said "All right, then, I'll go to Hell"—what might that mean in the Valley of Mexico, parted from the love of his life, apparently forever, or behind Rebel lines in the Wilderness of central Virginia, with the duty to kill or capture old friends on the other side? How would our ageless hero do in such trials? Hell might be preferable. This revised Second Edition includes the originally intended "Epilogue," which was left out of the first edition, now out of print. Walker's own work experience--which includes ten years as a historian at Fredericksburg- Spotsylvania National Military Park and many years teaching English and creative writing--has prepared him particularly well to weave such a tale.
