Living in the 1800's wasn't an easy task. There were many hardships that a person had to
endure. In the novel, The Adventures of Huck Finn, the author Mark Twain portrays the
adventure of a young boy. Huck, the young boy, goes on a journey with various dilemmas.
The novel starts off in Missouri on the Mississippi River. Huck is taken from his

    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money.

Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
