The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn This work grapples with one of the most powerful themes in American history--slavery. Tracing the roots of author Mark Twain, this video travels from Twain's home in Hannibal, Missouri, where the novel is set, to Hartford, Connecticut, where Twain also lived, to the waters of the Mississippi, the site of Huck and Jim's journey. McAvoy Layne, an actor who specializes in recreating Mark Twain, uses Twain's own scathing critiques and satirical letters to paint a portrait of the author and the world that inspired his masterpiece.
