What ever happened to those little boys, Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer?
They grew up that’s what. In the spring of 1860, General Beauregard
fired on Fort Sumter and the now twenty-four year old boys can’t wait to
sign up to fight the Yankees.
In the first battle of the war Tom is wounded and Huck brings him back to
Missouri. But along the way they run into trouble and Huck ends up saving
the life of a sixteen-year old Yankee soldier who deserts and travels to
Missouri with the boys.
Once in Missouri the Yankee, whose name is Jed, leaves for California. A
month later Huck and Tom set out for San Francisco where Tom hopes to
catch a ship headed for China. Huck goes along to keep Tom company,
but plans on returning to Missouri when Tom sails.
Jed never makes it to California, Tom sets sail but never reaches China
and Huck never sees Missouri again. Twelve years later they come
together in the town of Redemption Colorado to fight a greedy rancher
and his army of hired guns.
Huck is now a famous lawman, Tom a widower and Jed is the infamous
Laramie Kid, a notorious gunfighter.
