They finally grow up, sort of...
Having grown up in rural America on the banks of the mighty Yakima River I always identified with the adventures of Tom and Huck. I read the books, saw the movies, and even played Tom Sawyer in our grade schools musical.
As an adult my mind often wanders back to those summers filled with lemonade, fishing, and bare foot adventures. But I always wondered what became of Tom and Huck. Well now I know and I am happy to say I'm not disappointed!
Krishna Rao has lovingly written and produced a wonderfully warm and funny tale of the adult shenanigans of these two timeless characters. There are many surprises in store for the listener as the story unwinds.
Huckelberry Finn shows up just as Tom's adult life is beginning to unravel and takes advantage of the situation to pressure Tom into one more great adventure with the promise of gold at the end of it. As you can imagine Huck is not being entirely honest and hilarity ensues at the two set out West.
If you have ever wondered what happened to Tom Sawyer and Huckelberry Finn do yourself a favor and listen to this podcast!
Such a creative and well presented piece. Thank you Krishna Rao for bringing us this exciting and inspiring tale. Please write more!
