Huck is the novel's main character and narrator. He has no mother (she's passed away), and his father is often gone, but even when he's home he not there; Huck's dad is a drunkard. Basically an orphan, Huck lives with Miss Watson and the Widow Douglas, they take good care of him even though he fights against their motherly ways. He leaves home seeking independence and the chance to make his own home in the natural world he loves best. His leaving causes all sorts of commotion and he experiences all kinds of adventure along with Jim and Tom.
