Mark Twain Room
USA

The Mark Twain Room at the Buffalo and Erie County Library is the home of the complete manuscript of Huckleberry Finn, in addition to over 500 English and foreign-language editions of Huckleberry Finn. The fireplace mantle is the restored mantle from the Clemens’ Buffalo home (from 1869 to 1871), which was at 472 Delaware Ave. The trunk in front of the mantle contained the 1st half of the Huck Finn manuscript after it was separated from the 2nd half (sometime after 1887) until it turned up at a New York auction around 1991. The two halves of the manuscript were reunited in 1992, after 105 years.

To see a panorama of the Mark Twain Study, where he wrote a good part of Huckleberry Finn, go to:

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
