The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?
What exactly are the adventures of Huck and Jim. What do they do, where do they go? In other words what are their "adventures".

The adventures are Huck’s; Jim is along with Huck most of the time. Huck’s first adventure is with some lady who is trying to civilize him. Then Tom Sawyers gang. Then his dad (Pap) kidnaps Huck and locks him in a shed in the wilderness. Huck escapes the shed and kills a pig and spreads pigs blood all around and then makes off with most of the camp-stores from around the shed to make it look like Huck was killed and the killers stole the camp-stores. Huck really took off down the river and hid out on an island. On the island is where Huck finds Jim hiding. Huck dresses up like a girl and goes across the river to get news from town. While across the river getting news near town Huck finds out that some people are getting ready to search the island. Then Huck and Jim take off down the river together on a raft. While going down river they have some adventures with steamboats, feuds, hangings, mobs, a king and a duke (flimflam men) who, amongst other deviltries, try to rob three innocent girls of their inheritance, with a bunch of other adventures mixed in too. In almost every case during the whole adventure untrained and unschooled Huck does things his way and his way is always better than the people he meets who are trained and schooled; the people who represent society.

Huck escapes from his father and takes Jim who is escaping from slavery. They travel down the river and often stop in towns on the side in small episodic adventures. But the book is far more complex and meaningful than my description suggests. You kinda have to read it yourself.
